Downhill mountain biking has had one constant during the last two decades - Greg Minnaar.

He has been the opposing force to a powerful French downhill mountain biking contingent. Since the the early 2000s, he has won multiple World Cup Championships and several UCI World Cup downhill calendar events.

Minnaar holds the record for more elite downhill mountain bike World Cup wins, than any other rider. Unsurprisingly, he ranks as downhill mountain biking's G.O.A.T (greatest of all time).
