High girth graphs avoiding a minor are nearly bipartite

ABSTRACT
Let H be a fixed graph. We show that any H?minor free graph of high enough girth has a circularchromatic number arbitrarily close to two. Equivalently, such graphs have homomorphisms into a large odd circuit. In particular, graphs of high girth and of bounded genus or bounded tree width are "nearly bipartite" in this sense. For example, any planar graph of girth at least 16 admits a homomorphism onto a pentagon. We also obtain tight bounds in a few specific cases of small forbidden minors.
