Santa Cruz Syndicate’s Greg Minnaar (SRAM/RockShox) overcame an ankle injury to place 3rd at the fifth round of the Nissan UCI World Cup Downhill in Maribor, Slovenia and takes the leader’s jersey from teammate Steve Peat. This marks Greg’s 40th world cup downhill podium out of 70 world cup starts. Steve Peat was on a great race run and was .06 faster at the first split than race winner Fabien Barel. He then suffered a rear flat and finished in a distant 38th place. Josh Bryceland struggled to find his form and placed 25th.

Here's John Lawlor's video from Slovenia at the weekend.

(I'll collect all the team videos and post them all up together at the end of the week)
