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!
