E-Bike Racing: Cool Or Uncool? | EMBN Show Ep. 62

Published on March 6th 2019


In this weeks show Steve welcomes back special guest Georgia Leslie to get her thoughts on E bike racing and its future. What makes for a good race; the camaraderie, location, adventure, or sense of achievement? What is the best format for E Mountain Bike racing? Should riders be categorised by weight or age? Is the industry ready for racing?⚡️ Thumbnail 📸 courtesy of Georgia Leslie and Chris Greenwood @cagreenwood Subscribe: http://embn.me/subscribenow Our shop: https://embn.me/e- Steve also sits down for a chat with Fabian Barel about racing on EMTBs. In the news there's a CVT drivetrain from Revonte, is this a new direction in which E bikes are headed? Bosch are expanding their charging points across Europe and into the UK.
