-photos and interviews by Sven Martin
Sven Martin, long-time friend of Greg and Vital media guru at large captured a fantastic weekend of World Champs activity. He and Greg discussed all his past world champs wins prior to the race, with candor and transparency, and then they were able to get together after Greg won again this year to discuss how it all came together. The class act that Minnaar is, he deflects to his support crew as the reason he won, and Sven manages to get their insight too with Lyle, Greg's mechanic, Laura, his physical trainer, Jordi from FOX and the legend himself, Rob Roskopp. There's even a bonus clip with Arthur, an engineer at Commencal, discussing the V10 as Greg listens on.
Thank you Sven, congratulations Greg! Enjoy the show and make sure you hit VitalMTB.com for all the action from a mind-blowing weekend at World Champs.
