Four-time downhill World Champion Greg Minnaar has been racing for Santa Cruz Bicycles since 2008. So when he told Santa Cruz that he didn’t know what goes into building the bikes he rides we knew they had just the job for him.

In the video below Greg visits the Factory in Santa Cruz, CA where they design, engineer, test, validate, assemble and package every Santa Cruz bike. Greg doesn’t get the VIP treatment, though. Instead, he’s coached by the real bike building champions and actually gets his hands dirty to bring some bikes to life. In part one, Greg gets the lay of the land, explains his true motivation for becoming a professional bike racer, assembles a link, and discovers the depth of what happens and the people behind it in Santa Cruz, CA.
