Greg Minnaar needs no introduction. The so-called GOAT has been at the sharp end of the World Cup field for two decades, evolving alongside the sport to stay at the top for all these years.
It's Shortys front and rear at the moment. While they've talked about switching to something else, so far they've stuck with the mud tires because "the forecast looks suspect for the weekend" and it's good to keep things as consistent as possible before the race.
A Saint and XTR combo. Minnaar prefers the feel of the XTR levers over the Saints.
Even without custom dropouts, the bike is set up long and low. After Leogang, his mechanic said, he started using a new headset that adds 5.2mm in reach and slackens the bike by half a degree.
Sure looks like new Saint. "It doesn't exist," his mechanic said when asked about the drivetrain.
Stylish Chris King hubs (plus a bonus angle on that derailleur).
Burgtec bars, seatpost, and saddle.
