If you’ve ever wondered what your suspension is getting up to when you ride your bike, wonder no more! Our Features Editor, Alex, went to the Alps recently and put a Fox 36 Float FIT4 Factory fork through its paces, all in the name of fun. Check out this mesmerising video of the fork getting a proper seeing-to on the Pleney black run in Morzine, France.
Alex Evans is BikeRadar's mountain bike technical editor. He started racing downhill at the tender age of 11 before going on to compete across Europe. Alex moved to Morzine in the French Alps at 19 to pursue a career as a bike bum and clocked up an enormous amount of riding. Riding those famous tracks day in, day out for eight years, he broke more bikes than he can remember. Alex then moved back to the UK and put his vast knowledge of mountain biking to good use by landing a job working for MBUK magazine as features editor. Since working for MBUK, Alex's focus has moved to bike tech. He's one of BikeRadar's lead testers, knows how to push bikes and products to the limit, and wants to search out the equipment that represents the best value for money. Alex is also a regular on the BikeRadar Youtube channel and BikeRadar podcast.
