Considering the fact that there is one less moving component set to take care of and run over maintenance cycles with, there is simply less to wear out or go wrong with the hardtail. This can only mean one thing - more time spent riding! However, as long as one runs their bike through a bike wash and clean up after riding in harsh conditions, this should not deter one from getting a full suspension bike. Also, a good full suspension bike will have components and pivots that can handle the abuse they would be put through during rough trail riding.
Better handling, especially on technical trails
The presence of a rear suspension means that the rider has better control over the bike on all sorts of terrain since the wheels track the ground better. This allows the rider to ride with more confidence and push the bike to further limits on technical and rocky terrain.
With the better control and handling that one is provided with, the fact that you will be more confident with the bike will allow you to push yourself and the bike faster. That is why downhill racers readily took to full suspension bikes the moment they were made available in the market.
