EWS Colombia Highlights

Pinkbike have released the official highlights of EWS Round 2 from Manizales in Colombia on their YouTube channel with the event being memorable for several reasons.

The round saw the first EWS urban street stage, through downtown Manizales, before the riders got to experience rain Colombian style, with the torrential downpours leaving the tracks virtually unrideable in many places.

Despite the bad weather, reigning champions Sam Hill and Cecile Ravanel took the respective mens and womens race wins for the second time this season.

Thanks to the weather, the 20 minute highlights don’t offer a lot of riding to study and learn from (though Sam Hill’s use of motocross style cornering and alternative lines seems to have played a part in getting him from the top to the bottom of the course faster than the rest) but are well worth a watch regardless.

If you’re going to take the time to practice, practice like the elite.
