Get Dialed for World Cup mountain bike racing with Fox – Behind every podium is the multi-faceted story of grit, preparation and support. Starting earlier this week, Fox is now taking viewers behind the scenes of the 2019 UCI World Cup race series for an insider’s view on what it takes to support a team of world class athletes. Their Dialed series adds new videos every day in the week leading up to every World Cup DH & several XC races.

When the margins of World Cup victories are measured within hundredths of seconds, the perfect suspension tune can be the difference between a career-defining result and mid-pack disappointment. Dialed will follow seasoned Fox Factory Race Tech Jordi Cortes from stop to stop as he helps dial in athletes’ suspensions while handling the pressure of his work having a direct impact on the make-or-break of their races.
