Update from Greg Minnaar: Thanks for all the questions guys, sorry I wasn't able to get to all of them. I'm off now, but I'll try to stop by again to follow up on a few more. Stay Loose
With a career closing in on two decades at the top, Greg Minnaar's name is synonymous with World Cup Downhill racing. With the three World Championships, three World Cup Series Overall championships, and 75 World Cup DH podiums over the course of his career, the 37 year old from Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, is one of the winningest racers of all time. A member of the revered Santa Cruz Syndicate team, Greg's experience and attention to detail have been a valuable resource for product engineers in the development and testing process of new products, whether it's a new bike or, a signature tire.
With the start of the World Cup DH season about to kick off in Maribor shortly, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity for you to ask him your questions. How ‘Ask Us Anything' Works:
Starting at 10:00 AM PDT/6:00 PM BST on March 19, 2019 you can type your questions for Greg Minnaar into the comment box below this article and he'll have a crack at answering them. Sometimes your answer will pop up in a few seconds; others may take a few minutes while Chris works his way through questions that are popping up. Everyone who posts a question, large or small, will be taken seriously.
To make this go as smoothly as possible, try to follow these guidelines:
• Keep your questions relevant
• Stay focused and to keep your questions on one topic if possible. You can always ask about another item later
• Try to keep your questions to about 100 words
• Ask Us Anything is a service to PB readers who are seeking helpful information, not a forum to broadcast opinions or grievances. If you do have an issue that you want to ask about, no worries, just keep your complaints relevant and in the context of a question so that it can be addressed in a productive manner
• Use propping to acknowledge good (or not so good) questions and bump them up or down to where they belong
