PUMPED

“In down town Maniza­les where apart­ments and peo­ple are stacked on-top of each other, we sat in the mid­dle of a closed off street, watch­ing Colom­bian TV live through a front door left open by a gen­er­ous lo­cal. Rid­ers were at­tack­ing, rac­ing and “free rac­ing” their way down a maze of streets lined with 20 000 spec­ta­tors. There was no con­fu­sion about start times, you just watched the plate num­bers come down and when it was your turn, you just put your hel­met on and and raced down one of the loud­est stages in his­tory.... It was nuts.” - Chris Panozzo
