Greg Minnaar Injury Update, Knee Surgery Likely

Greg Minnaar Injury Update, Knee Surgery Likely


Greg Minnaar's knee injury during practice at the Leogang World Cup will likely lead to surgery this off-season.

Greg said, “I was coming to a section in practice and my back wheel slipped off a log," said the reigning World Champ.  "I tried to run it out and I didn’t really hit the floor.  I was waiting for a gap in riders to go back up to get my bike and when I leaned forward to cross the track my knee flipped backwards.  I rode down the side of the track to the pits knowing I had done something pretty bad. I’ve torn the meniscus and ACL, and as far as I know I’ll need surgery."

Greg, everyone at Vital wishes you a speedy recovery!
