Greg Minnaar recently said that he’d have just one chance to win the World Championships on his home turf during his career and yesterday, Minnaar did just that. Check out his expression on the podium in Pietermaritzburg–it’s the kind of thing that makes grown men weepy. On the XX chromosome side of the podium, Rachel Atherton took the win in the women’s field. There are also some good interviews in here, including Jared Graves (who wound up on the podium as well) explaining why he opted to ride his Yeti SB66c enduro bike instead of a dedicated downhill bike. Check it out.
