Cape Town - South Africa's Greg Minnaar has made his intentions for this year's UCI MTB World Cup season clear with victory in Fort William, Scotland on Sunday.
Now 35-years-old, Minnaar is showing no signs of winding down and he finished in a time of 4:40.344, a full 2.979 seconds ahead of Australia's Jack Moir.
Minnaar's long-time rival, America's Aaron Gwin, finished third, some 3.799 seconds behind the Pietermaritzburg-born superstar.
It is the seventh time that Minnaar has won at Fort William - nobody has won more - and he takes his overall World Cup win tally to 20, solidifying his status as the most decorated downhill rider of all time.
Minnaar finished 59th in Round 1 of the 2017 season at Lourdes in France, but this past weekend's win sets him up nicely for the rest of the season.
