THUMB-Fox-Quick-Adjusting-Bypass-9-5-13Quick Adjusting Bypass technology is available as an option for all new 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5 Fox External Bypass shocks or as an upgrade.

The Fox Quick Adjusting Bypass (QAB) technology allows you to manually adjust bypass tubes, quickly and easily, making fumbling with tools and visually counting turns obsolete.

The CNC Machined 6061-T6 aluminum adjustment knobs—anodized blue for compression or red for rebound–are knurled for increased grip, with laser-etched arrows indicating adjustment direction.  The adjuster has the same flow and range of adjustment as our regular bypass units. The new design has a definitive click at every quarter revolution of the knob, making adjustments simple and quick—tracking shock changes is now easier than ever. The knobs also feature an O-ring seal to keep moisture and contaminants out, insuring a reliable adjustment turn after turn.

Primm, NV – The High Desert Racing Association (HDRA) put together another incredible event; this time a long course night race at Primm, Nevada. Each lap of the Dusk til Dawn 250 was more than 50 miles long allowing the teams to open it up under the stars.

The darkness was no match for Brandon Arthur who’s bright yellow HRT Motorsports, Competitive Metals, Ford F-100 lit up the course with consistent fast laps and his Rigid Industries, LED lightbar. With no prerunning allowed and days of monsoon rains before the race, unexpected washouts were the main concern on the first lap. Thankfully, the course was in fair shape but not entirely free from hazards. Running flat out, Brandon came up on a pool of standing water that caught him and co-driver Donny Kerr off guard. His FOX Racing Shox soaked up the hit on the suspension but the skidplate slapped the surface of the water sending it exploding into the sky and up and over the roof of the truck. Unfazed, the engine kept slurping the F&L Racing Fuel and the truck never skipped a beat. The incident produced nothing more than a good laugh and a wipe of the face shield.

FOX athlete Josh Frederick overcame adversity and tough track conditions in the Arizona desert to finish in second place of the fourth round of the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) and keep the series points lead, while his teammate Dillon Zimmerman rode to a solid top five finish.

Slick conditions were the order of the day due to abundant water on the course. The hard-packed sand left pools of water standing and made a slippery mess in many areas, but Frederick was in control as he charged off the start in third place.

Frederick kept a fast and steady pace going into the first couple of laps and was able to move into the No. 2 spot. Frederick held his position for several laps and took over the first spot when the leader pulled into the pits.

Frederick was soon under fire from the competition, and due to a recent illness, fatigue got the best of him, and he fell back. Despite feeling under the weather, Frederick held strong and finished in second place.

“We did a lot of testing for this track and our FOX suspension worked awesome. Im really excited with the positive outcome,” Frederick said.

FOX athlete Zimmerman also put in a strong effort and came out in the No. 4 spot off the starting line. Zimmerman rode a smart and consistent race and finished in fourth place for the day.

“My FOX suspension was perfectly dialed in, and it really helped to get me through some of the rough spots today and not get to beat up,” Zimmerman said.

Round five of the 2012 WORCS series will be held from May 11-13 at Racetown 395 MX Park in Adelanto, Calif.

In the AMA Pro Motocross series we’ve seen the consistency of TwoTwo Motorsport’s Chad Reed pay off as he leads the points over Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto, who has had the speed to win on any weekend but just hasn’t had the consistency of Reed.  In the Lites class, it’s been all about the dominating performance of the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team with their riders handing over the red plate like a hot potato after each round.  Dean Wilson has managed to keep the points lead heading into the off weekend over Blake “El Chupacabra” Baggett who sits 2nd in points and their teammate Tyla Rattray sitting 3rd.  In the WMX series, Ashley Fiolek ripped off two massive holeshots this past weekend at Red Budd to go 1-1 for the overall and extend her points lead over 2nd place.

In the FIM World Motocross series we have seen the Red Bull Teka KTM team consistently up front and new red plate holder Antonio Cairoli working his way back into the top spot of the series standings after an impressive win at the Swedish round.  Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Clement Desalle sits 2nd in points as the series heads to Germany this weekend.  Speaking of Germany, this weekend’s race will see hometown kid Ken Roczen looking to expand his points lead in the MX2 class over his Red Bull Teka KTM teammate Jeffrey Herlings.

North of the border in the Monster Energy Canadian Motocross nationals, after 4 of 9 rounds have been completed, it has been total domination by the Yamaha Red Bull Blackfoot Fox Racing squad of Colton Facciotti and Dusty Klatt in the MX1 class with both riders sitting 1-2 in the points respectively.  In the MX2 class it’s more of the same with Blackfoot’s Tyler Medaglia holding a healthy points leads over his nearest rival.

Switching to offroad racing, in the Can-am GNCC series it’s been a close battle between FMF Makita Suzuki’s Josh Strang and FMF KTM’s Charlie Mullins after 8 rounds.  The two have battled non-stop thus far and sit atop the Leaderboard heading into this weekend’s round in Ohio.

In the WORCS series, FMF KTM’s Kurt Caselli has been the most consistent up front, and with the most wins (2) leads Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert by comfortable margin in the Pro 1 class.  The WORCS series is currently on “Summer Break” and will resume racing in late August in Washington state.
