The day after winning his 20th World Cup DH race and 7th (3rd in a row) at Fort William, Greg Minnaar made the trip to Bike Park Albstadt in Germany for a ride day with O’Neal teams and riders based in Germany. Be sure to watch the special edit from the day:
Almost all of the O’Neal German DH riders and teams showed up – in the end, riding with your hero is somehow more important than work and school!
Despite Leogang was only a few days away, it was great to see Greg taking the time to hang out and ride with up-and-coming national riders who dream of following in his footsteps.
As well as the riders from the bike park who hosted the event – BPA Team – there was also representation from the Solid Team, Schatzki Team and Bergrausch Team as well as countless other riders.
Greg brought the Scottish weather with him and the rain tried to get in the way, but in the end we managed to get some good riding in and bagged some great shots and video footage. And it was as much about hanging out and having fun as it was about riding.
We’re lucky, both here at O’Neal and the riders we support, to be working with such a professional rider.
