Minaar avoids the wreckage to win World
The first 180 degree corner of the Fort Bill 4X course is where it all happened right through the event and boy did it ever happen in the final.
Steve Peat, Eric Carter, Michal Prokop (he’s Czech and he flew) and Greg went into it elbow to elbow. The first three tangled up and did the traditional cursing heap impression and Greg flew through to take it. That’s 4X.
Katrina Miller took the women’s event, despite an awesome display of power by, tiny but dynamite, Japanese rider Moi Suemasa.
The Cross Country was the usual disappointment for the British crowd. First Brit home was Liam Killeen in 18th.
