I remember burning through a set of new pads on a single ride with an extended descent, likely '96 or '97. It wasn't really a DH per se [Jumpingpound/Cox Hill], but after 6km I seriously considered going with ceramic rims or keeping a drag chute in my seat pack.
I recall being on a ride with some friends, and hearing a huge BANG from up ahead. Coming around the corner, we see buddy is pulling himself out of a shrub, and the rim has been worn down so far on his rear wheel that it has split and punctured his tire. The odds of this happening with disc brakes is pretty much nil...
