    My First Win on a Element 950 RSL

    This weekend in Comfort Tx I won my first race on an Element 950 RSL. I usually race on my Vertex 950 but it was needing some repairs. The Rocky dealer here in Austin (Crankhouse Cycles) let me use their Element demo and it was amazing. My favorite thing about it has to be the suspension shifters. The ability to put it in full lockout before hitting a short fire road climb in the last few minutes of the race, and be able to stand up and hammer up it was the difference. I pulled away and ended up winning by about 15 ft. I am so stoked on this bike.

    Congrats on your win. I'm looking forward getting my element frame in April. Can't wait to get it built up.

    Congrats! Must be nice to be in Texas and racing already! I've been riding my 970RSL on studs but we're still months away from the race season.

    I like the handlebar lockout too, even if it's a bit bulky. Good approach for XC racing where you attack both smooth climbs and tech.
