Enduro World Series: Round 2 - Manizales, Colombia

Round 2 of the Enduro World Series provided a completely different set of challenges for racers after Round 1 last weekend in Chile. In almost a completely different set of conditions, racers ventured into the tropical rainforest of the Colombian mountains for Round 2. Stage 1 opened on Saturday with a urban DH through Manizales followed by 7 stages on Sunday through the damp and dense South American rainforests.


From the dry Chilean dust the week before to the slick, hilly streets of Manizales - the Enduro World Series is throwing everything at the racers this season. 


A popular event for the locals - Manizales has been hosting an Urban DH race since 2016.
