Minnaar Fractures Arm Ahead Of Fort William World Cup. Stoltz Suggests Quick Fix
South Africa’s Greg Minnaar has fractured his right arm in practice and is out of his favourite World Cup DH event at Fort William, Scotland this weekend. Minnaar won the event in 2017.
According to Minnaar’s Instagram account, while practicing on the new Santa Cruz V10 29er prototype, he crashed and joked that the bike was ‘too quick for him.’
She’s a beauty! The V10 is an ongoing project and this latest prototype is another step up in terms of refinement and performance. Unfortunately she was a little too quick for me in testing, and I went down fracturing my right arm. We’ll be back to solve the puzzle soon bru’s! 🎥 @steelcitymedia @santacruzbicycles @fox @rideshimano @maxxistires @oakleybike @onealracing @clifbar @fiveten_official @crankbrothers @vallnord @burgtec
Minnaar has won at Fort William seven times during his long career.
Former world Xterra champion Conrad Stoltz – known for his ability to ride through injury – suggested in the comments under the post that Minnaar use duct tape to solve the problem.
Minnaar is expected to be out of racing for at least six weeks.
