2005 Downhill World Cup Champion and South African cyclist of the year, Greg Minnaar, was handed the keys of a brand new silver Honda CRV by John Laurence, Marketing Manager of Honda SA, earlier this week. Minnaar's amazing mountain biking talents and skills accentuate the versatility and adaptability of the Honda CRV, making the new partnership the perfect match according to Mr Laurence of Honda South Africa: "We have had many athletes approach us, but being affiliated with Greg just seemed like great synergy".
After yet another awesome season and championship title won in the colours of Team G-Cross Honda aboard the spectacular Honda RN01, Greg is quickly becoming an icon in South African sporting circles. The 24 year-old from Pietermaritzburg will be sporting his new set of wheels at various exciting Honda product launches early next year until he crosses the waters to defend his World Cup title.
"It's awesome to be affiliated with Honda SA and I look forward to building a relationship with them. The car is slick, it drives great and I just want to say thanks again to John & Chantel from Honda SA and Darryl & Grant from Bandit Signs for doing the vehicle graphics." said a clearly happy Minnaar.
The Honda CRV has but one goal: "To help you accomplish your goals whatever they may be." And it's with this slogan that Honda SA will be supporting Greg Minnaar in achieving his goals for the 2006 season.
