Watch: Greg Minnaar Between Races in Shimano’s “Off The Clock”

After winning the 2021 World Championships and becoming downhill mountain biking’s most decorated rider, Greg Minnaar, a.k.a. “The Goat,” got off to a bit of a slow start at the first round of the 2022 DH World Cup.

So, after finishing up the first round of the DH World Cup, Greg heads back to the Alps at the Santa Cruz Syndicate headquarters to fine tune the bike, body, and mind for the remainder of the UCI Downhill World Cup season. Finding the flow on the DH race bike is key for top-level athletes, so Greg alongside his mechanic Lyle Hyslop, work closely as a team to identify and tackle obstacles that unlock possibilities. Together, they fine-tune Greg’s bike to achieve a comfortable and confidence inspiring base line setup for the remainder of the season.

Greg recently went down at the last World Cup of the season in Val di sole . We wish him all the best with his recovery and know that he’ll be back training again soon in preparation for the next season.
