Video: Greg Minnaar, OneLife 21

When Gary Perkin and Greg Minnaar come together for a video, you get 20-minutes of awesomeness. A must-watch on your road to World Champs.

Who is Greg Minnaar? What are his roots? Why is Pietermaritzburg so pivotal in his success? And what is OneLife? We'll attempt to answer these and other questions about the two-time Downhill World Champion and three-time World Cup Champion with this OneLife short.

Filmed over the course of 10 months when travel & plans permitted, from when Greg won the 2012 Downhill World Championships in Leogang, Austria, till the eve of the 2013 World Championships in his hometown of Pietermaritzburg.

    Btw, I wonder if he will hang 'em up if he wins it like he hints at in the beginning of the vid. It would be a shame, but you can't question somebody of that caliber.

    Perhaps he's going to give moto another crack??

    Not Vimeo the link worked fine on my iPad, and. Use Vimeo all the time on my own Apple iPhone, Mac Pro and IPad, I rarely use anything else these days surfing though than iPad as its so quick and easy easier than phone way easier than a clunky PC or laptop they are just work tools now! I think what is the problem is its converted to adobe flash player which is not Apple friendly I suspect, just use Vimeo direct don't convert it and everyone can access it via be site! Jmpov!

    Still mentioning winning PMB as a good end of a career? =( I wonder if he would actually do it? He has mentioned not necessarily wanting to retire but not being very motivated to do much else if he did win.

    That was mint! If you think the crowd went wild when he won the world-cup there last season, they might just level that hill altogether if he were to deliver this time around.
