March 16/12 11:49 am - Pietermaritzburg MTB World Cup: DH Qualifying report and photos


Posted by Editoress on 03/16/12
 

Greg Minnaar (Santa Cruz Syndicate) showed that a week off the bike has not hurt his speed, as he qualified first in the Men's Downhill at the first round of the World Cup in his home town of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.  He beat defending champion Aaron Gwin (Trek World Racing) by a miniscule eight-thousandths of a second, with Canada's Steve Smith (Devinci Global Racing) qualifying third.  The top three men were all within one second of each other, while fourth placed Gee Atherton (GT Factory) was nearly two seconds back.
