World Champion Greg Minnaar returned to the downhill track to grab top honours at the South African National Cup.

It was a sweltering hot day in 3time World Champion Greg Minnaars’ home town as the Santa Cruz Syndicate rider returned to winning form and clinched not only the fastest qualifying spot, but also the top honours overall at the first South African Downhill MTB National Cup.

Minnaar has been recovering from an ACL replacement surgery, and using a specialised knee brace to protect his knee, still managed to show the rest of the field the class that he showed 6 months earlier when he clinched his 3rd World Championship jersey on much of the same track.

Harties Cableway DH Track from NSRMTB on Vimeo.

It’s been two years in the making and a labor of love by a handful of Gauteng DH riders and track builders, but the wait is finally over and South Africa once again has a downhill track with cable car uplift. We must emphasize that the track and use of the venue for DH riding is by appointment and prior arrangement only at this stage. But rest assured that NSRMTB will keep you updated on the future developments at the Harties Cableway DH track and we hope to see riders from all over the country come share in the fun of this spectacular venue.

This is an on going unscheduled series showing the unfortunate side of building in BC’s forests – Logging.
