Default What really happened at redbull minas riders?

Anyone know what exactly happened to cut the race short?
The official reports seem pretty politically correct and range from additional risk assessments required by the police to then changed to torrential rains.

There are a lot of comments on Facebook that are indicating all sorts of reasons (but that might just be google translate!)

That aside. Some of those sections looked hectic And the way Cody Webb was riding it looked like it was going to get interesting

And the way taddy (roving commentator) rode some sections, I suspect he may shift his retirement in this direction??

It seems very suspicious that everything was good for two days of racing and then all of a sudden super serious "environmental issues" cropped up and required that the race be stopped. It was a big event for the area and I am sure would have been bringing in huge dollars to the local economy. There has been speculation of various forms of corruption? Who knows? I wouldn't be surprised if that event is permanently dropped by Red Bull.

I doubt it will be dropped (Although possibly moved to an adjacent country) as I have heard there are land access issues cropping up in Romania that may ultimately end the rb romaniacs and then this would take over (all interweb gossip nothing confirmed)
