Greg Minnaar is one of the most-dominant racers on the World Cup circuit, and is usually the star of the Santa Cruz Syndicate. But this year he broke his arm early in the season and is just now getting back to racing. Look at the Syndicate's results though, and you wouldn't notice his absence: Loris Vergier is regularly on the podium, including his first win in Vallnord, and he’s sitting in second overall. Luca Shaw hasn't put together a winning final run yet, be he’s qualified first multiple times. Add Minnaar back to the mix, and the team is almost unstoppable. And they seem to have a lot of fun while not stopping.
In their time between races, they tried out the new 5010 with Danny MacAskill, Vergier took on the French National champs and they've been preparing for La Bresse in France this coming weekend. It's an entirely new track and should be quite the show. You can bet Syndicate will be in the mix.
