The bad news: Greg Minnaar had a nasty looking fall today at Val di Sole that snapped his Santa Cruz V10 in two when it struck a very solid looking wooden pole on the side of the course.

The good news: Greg Minnaar didn't seem to be injured, and qualified 2nd for tomorrow's final World Cup race of the year at Val di Sole, Italy. Let's hope he's feeling 100% and is able to put in a proper run on an alternate bike!

Mega hat tip to Ben Cathro, who's been killing it with his Youtube commentary vids this week. You can - and should - subscribe to his channel if you want to enjoy more of his excellent trackside thoughts and observations.

Tsk Tsk Tsk, if he was riding a 27.5 it wouldn't have broken.
