 @FabienTT: if Colombia it's not Columbia, next time name "Deutschland" instead "Alemania" or "Sverige" instead "Suecia".

 so stage 8 is purely for the spectators? kinda like stage 1. not complaining, i think its awesome theyve all come out to watch. Colombia seems more relaxed that way, theyd never let mountain bikers race across a manicured lawn in the u.s.

 @VZLNMTB: yeah I did notice how tough the grass was in Columbia. It’s held up well to all those riders.

 www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qxhD0iEq0A&feature=youtu.be&t=2h30m26s - Sam Hill's run starts at 2h30m26s, if anyone's interested.
That being said, does anyone know why they chose to run proper trail tyres and not semi-slicks, or street tyres?

 Guessing they can't swap wheels/tires as per EWS rules, meaning they'd have to run semi-slicks all day.

 @Klainmeister: stickers were only required on fork and frame, not on rims for the urban race, you could use different tires/wheelset for the mountain stages on the next day, if you broke them

 This is not a EWS racing stage, is this for real..... My 4 year old could ride this.

 This has to be a joke. I'm embarrassed for these guys.

 The lawn has been photoshopped on :-)

 So we can actually see some live coverage of the EWS in TV and you complain? That's how mass adoption is created. This is for the fans and this should be okay for every racer if the rest of the stages were nice. I like it. Good job Columbia! The other venues can learn from that

 Stage 1 and 7 (Final) were more like exhibition stages . 2 thru 6 were the real deal. Overall the competition was intense and racers can tell you same. Kudos to the organizers and local media for bringing for the first time EWS live.

 So weak. Those stages were crap. First one just showed amateurs and the 2nd was a 50 second golf coarse.

 "Los riders"...that's as far as my spanish skills go. The spots they chose to film were funny...like the short climb at the beginning where riders were getting off to walk!
