Minnaar Podiums at Fort William British Downhill Series13th MAY 2013

Fort William Scotland was a buzz all week with sports events starting with the 102nd running of the Scottish Six Day Trial event and concluding on Sunday with the Saracen British Downhill Series race. There is only one man in the world that could compete in both, and that of course is Steve Peat! It was exciting to watch Steve assaulting the steep, rocky mountain stream trail at the foot of Ben Nevis on his trials bike, then go back to the mountain bike track to see Greg MInnaar and Josh Bryceland honing their craft! Keeping the mix lively was Cedric Gracia. Greg went on to podium in 4th, Josh in 6th, Cedric whipping it up for 22nd and Steve in 28th.

A weary Steve comments about his week, "I've been coming up to the Six Day Trial with my Dad since I was a child. It was great to come ride it for my second time, but it happened to overlap on the same weekend as the BDS. I finished the trial in 107th place on Saturday, and ton Sunday did my two downhill runs before the final with my Syndicate teammates. And as you can imagine, my V-10 felt nothing like my Beta! I put together a good run for the quali's, but my body was physically sore. Big thanks to the Syndicate mechanics, Sessy, and especially my Mum and Dad who came and supported me each day of the Six Day Trial!"

Greg felt happy achieving his objectives saying, "It's been a good few days coming in to Ft. Bill to get my bikes set up and ready for the world cup season. We finally found a set up I was comfortable on. We came here more for preparation, so if you see it that way we achieved a lot this weekend and I was happy with my riding."

Josh was also pleased, "The weekend was really productive and my bike is well set up for the world cup now. I really enjoyed my time with the team and feel my riding is where it should be." Thanks to Si Paton and his crew for putting on a great race, especially with the changing weather conditions. Next up for Syndicate is the first Enduro World Series in Punta Ala, Italy. Everyone is really excited to launch this new series!
