The Syndicate: Episode 6 Greg Minnaar

After the win at Mont Sainte Anne, Santa Cruz Syndicate ("this is not a trade team") rider Josh 'Ratboy' Bryceland and Greg Minnaar were looking to turn the back to back UCI World Cup Downhill event weekends into a North American double.

Whilst both riders looked strong in qualifying with Greg finishing 4th, and Josh 6th, come the finals, things started to go off script. Ratboy's front wheel got a little wild on the dusty fire road section, which cost him some time, putting him into 7th, despite a run that looked fast. Meanwhile Greg laid down a smooth, clean, and fast run that put him in the hot seat and it looked like he might stay there.

Then Aaron Gwin came down the mountain, taking his home win....

Greg's result moves him into second place in the series, 135 points behind Gwin, and within striking distance for the World Cup, which finishes in Val di Sole, Italy in two weeks.
