Minnaar, Bryceland and Syndicate Shotgun the UCI titles.

The Santa Cruz Syndicate bagged all the titles they chased this year in Schladming, Austria at the Nissan UCI World Cup Series finale. It was a tight points race and Greg Minnaar proved his dominance in this series winning three of the seven events and by placing fifth today he clinched the title, his third series overall win of his career in the elite men’s downhill. Josh Bryceland sat out the final race with a broken collarbone but still had enough points to retain his hold on the junior overall title. And a collective effort by the Syndicate members this season paid off with the top downhill team champion’s crystal trophy going home in the hands of the Syndicate’s fearless leader, Rob Roskopp thus capping off a magic year.

The Steinbach Pump Track Challenge - Manitoba's First Ever Pump Track Race and Dirt Jump Event The Steinbach Pump Track Challenge - Manitoba's First Ever Pump Track Race and Dirt Jump Event
The mountain bike scene in Manitoba is slowly growing bigger, and better, more events are popping up all around this flat province, and it's about time an event came along like this. The event will consist of a pump-track race and dirt jump competition. Our main goal is to push the sport in Manitoba and get the province recognized for biking rather than the large amount of mosquitoes.

Get Pumped For The Pump Challenge!

Bromont World Cup from behind the lens Bromont World Cup from behind the lens
This is not old news. It’s just a bit late.

We all know that Sam Hill won the DH at Bromont, but because I’m sure not all of you have been to a World Cup I thought I’d share my impressions of what it’s like from behind the lens. If you don’t want to read it, just look at the photos. Either way, please enjoy!
