I actually did this last week, with a result that I was half expecting: The soft elastomer ruptured. Unfortunately I chose to ride a particularly rough, steep piece of singletrack for this experiment, as it was the front wheel was lifting, I couldn't unclip fast enough and it was touch and go or I had a stack. So unfortunately I destroyed the elastomer before properly experimenting with it.
