Agree with Al, but if the courses are very technical, this may work to your advantage.
The general rule of thumb is that changing your fork travel by 1" (approx. 25 mm) will change your head tube angle by 1 degree.
That 1 degree will dramatically affect your bike handling.
Try it out, you may prefer it!
