VIDEO: Greg Minaar – Unfinished Business + Schladming Laps

Was treibt Greg Minaar an und wie schafft er es als einer der alten Hasen im World Cup immer noch aufs Podium zu kommen? Minaar trägt nicht ohne Grund den Spitznamen „G.O.A.T“ (Greatest of all time). Vergangenes Jahr holte der Südafrikaner Gold und hielt die jungen Athleten des Rennzirkus ordentlich auf Trab. Doch wie hält er sich fit und wo sind seine Wurzeln? Das Santa Cruz Syndikate zeigt es uns. 

„My last win was in 2017. In the back of your mind you do wonder if you’re capable of winning again.“

39 years young, Greg Minnaar is re-defining what an action sports athlete can do in the ‚latter‘ years of their career, as he consistently progresses year on year, with a drive that’s un-matched to this day.

Coming into 2020, with it being such a short season there was no time to build into things, you had to come out of the gate swinging.

After a podium in Maribor, Greg went on to prove he still had the speed by taking Round 3 out in Lousa.

„I want to race to win, I want to be on the podium. That’s why I know it’s not time yet, there’s still unfinished business. And it needs to be taken care of.“

Go into the mind of the G.O.A.T as he gives you an honest and insightful account into his mindset and preparation, that has kept him on top to this day.

Trailer: Tea & Biscuits 2 – Wild MTB loam, sends, carnage and snacks!

Der erste Tea & Biscuits Film war ein voller Erfolg und machte einiges anders als andere Mountainbike Filme. Weniger Hochglanz, mehr pure Action, Stürze, Loam, Dreck und viel zum Lachen. Am 17.06.2022 ist nun der Launch zum zweiten Tea & Biscuit Film. Hier gibt es schon einmal den Trailer.

Tea & Biscuits 2 is a very British international mountain bike film by Caldwell Visuals and Misspent Summers. T&B’s second serving is an even bigger portion of lo-fi blasting by the world’s greatest and most committed mountain bikers. The tea party puts the sport’s legends at the same table as a host of up-and-comers and underappreciated heroes. Tommy C is packing the biscuits for the official premieres tour, with three UK dates next week and the official world premiere at Enduro World Series Tweed Valley on 2 June (tickets sold out, sorry!). Check out the trailer now, get excited, then try to sit tight until the full online launch mid-June. If you can’t wait until then, check out the independent screenings info below. A huge thank you to T&B2 Presenting sponsors, OneUp Components and Propain Bicycles, for sharing our love for a good brew and biccies, and also to the Supporting Sponsors, GT Bicycles, Maxxis, Nukeproof, Rocky Mountain and Yeti Cycles, for ditching the decaf to make the film possible.
