Greg Minnaar

3× Downhill World Champion, 3× Downhill World Cup overall winner, and 19 World Cup victories—Greg Minnaar is the most dominant downhill racer of all time.

The South African is an exceptional talent in the downhill scene. No other rider has won as much as Greg Minnaar. His resume is jaw-dropping; 3x World Champion, 3× overall World Cup winner, 19 individual World Cup victories, and 67 times he as stood on the podium out of 111 World Cup start. If that wasn’t enough, he also has a total of 10 medals from the Downhill World Championships. We were surprised and honored when Greg reached out and asked to try our grips. He has had problems with his hands in the past, Knowing Ergon has a strong design and functionality reputation he looked at us to provide a solution to his problem. We are proud that our GA2 grips resolve his problems and he is now back on the winning track, recently taking 1st place at the Fort William stop of the Downhill World Cup!
