Five Ten sponsored rider Greg Minnaar (Santa Cruz Syndicate) retains the leader’s jersey in the UCI World Cup Downhill Series with a 3rd place finish June 6, 2010 on this dry, dusty, brutal track in Fort William, Scotland. Starting the series with a win in Maribor and coming into Fort William wearing the leaders jersey was a great position for Greg to spring from.  In Saturday’s qualifier Greg put together a solid run wearing his new custom 5.10® SPD Minnaars, and clinched the 1st place points towards the individual ranking.  Feeling happy with his result he did a few back flips into the airbag in the pits.

 

The next race up is The Wheels of Speed event this week in Willingen, Germany where Greg will compete.
