Lyle Hyslop is mechanic to the most successful downhill mountain biker of all time, Greg Minnaar. Lyle took over as Greg’s mechanic in 2020, where they took a race victory in their first season together and backed that up with a World Champs gold medal this summer. We sat down to find out about Lyle’s background, his time in Morzine and how he became Greg’s mechanic. Lyle shares some great insight into Greg’s setup and processes. We chat about their findings from testing a mullet, hear about the modification that Lyle made to Greg’s bike for World Champs (that even Greg doesn’t know about) and much more. So sit back, hit play and listen to this episode with Lyle Hyslop.
