He managed to avoid hitting his head on the start gate this time
Round four of the World Cup in Lenzerheide is just a day away (that’s right, it’s Saturday, not Sunday, this round) and the track looks like it is baked dry and running fast.
Watch Greg Minnaar’s timed training run on a track that features wide open, ski-piste style sections and some scarily-large gap jumps and drops. The Lenzerheide track is brand new for this year and was designed with help from Steve Peat and Claudio Caluori.
Greg finished sixteenth in timed training, six seconds back on first placed Aaron Gwin, just to give you an idea how fast this track can be ridden. Gwin managed a time of 3:05, is a sub three minute run possible on this track?
Minnaar is enjoying a bumper run of form at the moment. He took a record breaking seventeenth win at round two in Fort William and currently sits third in the World Cup overall rankings.
He could have improved this at the last round in Leogang, but unfortunately he bashed his head when he came out of the start gate.
Saturday’s race starts at 2:30 GMT on the Red Bull website
