Santa Cruz Bicycles - Syndicate - Greg Minnaar

Greg Minnaar


Greg first started racing BMX at 4 yrs of age. He soon moved over to motocross and raced for 11 years before his parents bought a bicycle shop and his path to DH stardom began.  

Greg was initially inspired by the rivalry between Nico Vouilloz and Steve Peat.  He worked his way up to the Santa Cruz Syndicate team to eventually ride alongside one of those childhood heroes.  

With back-to-back World Championship wins on the Syndicate, Greg's goes from strength-to-strength.  Widely recognised as one of the smoothest and most consistent DH racers on the circuit.
