Great rider but far from being the Greatest of all time. That title belongs to Anne Carol Chausson followed by Rachel Atherton. If you want to count only the men then he is still behind Nicolas Vouilloz who have 5 titles and 7 senior world championship jerseys. Not to mention he did it all before being 25 years old. Gwin is probably second best with 5 titles as well as 20 world cup wins.

On paper you may be right but when Voullioz and Chausson were in their prime, the sport of DH was quite different than it is today.  Minnaar's career has spanned through the evolution of DH and he has proved his competitiveness throughout (including a 4th at Maribor yesterday).  It is such a different sport today so for me he is currently the best dh rider of all time.

Greg Minnaar has done many great things in his career including beating the legendary Nicolas Vouilloz for his first overall title. Nonetheless, facts are still facts and he still needs 2 more overall titles (which might be difficult to achieve) and at least 4 more World Championship jerseys (which is highly unlikely to happen). I find it disrespectful of those others to call him the GOAT. Legend yes but not the GOAT.
