One of the most successful racer/mechanic pairings has come to an end as Greg Minnaar has announced he will no longer be supported by Jason Marsh on the World Cup circuit. Marshy and Minnaar first started working together in 2012 and in an 8-year partnership they have claimed 2 World Championships, 6 World Cup wins and 28 World Cup podiums.
Off the racetrack, the pair were instrumental in bringing 29er wheels to World Cup racing after Greg raced a Hightower at the Enduro World Series in Finale Ligure and Marshy worked with Santa Cruz and Fox to make it a reality. Marshy also provided plenty of laughs and good times through his appearance on the Syndicate's team videos, where he was open and insightful about the racing process and the attention to detail that goes into refining a race winning bike.
Greg Minnaar's new mechanic will be Lyle Hyslop, who works in the Santa Cruz showroom in Morzine. The pair will be working together at their first race this weekend at round 2 of the French Cup in Les 2 Alpes
We wish Marshy all the best in his future endeavours.
