Greg Minnaar V10 29 Pole

The post that broke Greg Minnaar’s Santa Cruz V10 wasn’t small. Catch the video to get a better feel for its size and see the damage it caused.

At World Cup finals, Greg Minnaar had a nearly catastrophic encounter with a wooden post. We say nearly, because aside from a few bruises, he managed to walk away unscathed. His bike? Not so much…

Entering a corner towards the top of the track, Minnaar’s front washed out, which sent him catapulting down the track. As he tumbled, his frame made direct contact with a wooden post (which probably should have been wrapped) and snapped in half. The incident was widely circulated on the internet after the incident, but if you haven’t seen it, check out the video above.

Curious how the post faired? Scroll to 13:40 in this video. After the incident, Steve Peat and Jason Marsh (Minnaar’s mechanic) shook the post out of the ground and brought it down for examination. In the crash video, the post didn’t seem very large, but your opinion might change when you see it against Steve Peat’s 6-foot-3 frame.
