Greg Minnaar is Back, Ladies and Gentlemen

After Greg Minnaar injured himself right before the Fort William round of the UCI DH World Cup, many thought his season was over. A fractured arm seems pretty non-conducive to racing DH bikes. Turns out a little R&R goes a long way, as the South African triumphantly returns to the running at this weekend’s Mont Sainte Anne race. Oh, and have we mentioned that Minnaar has been doing this for two decades, with 75 World Cup podiums under his belt. Can he make it one more this weekend? Check out
