Verbier, Switzerland - December 01, 2021 - A well-roundet 2022 EBWT series will kick off in the Austrian resort of Flachau before heading to Tignes-Vall d'Isère (France) and Verbier (Switzerland).
Sublime landscapes and a tried and tested format: a festival with inclusive e-bike events for any rider, plus elite races at every stop of the series.
A festival for all…
In terms of the festival, there will be something for everyone. Children and adults, newbies and experts alike, not forgetting those simply keen to try out a new sport. E-bike tests, Discovery Routes, and the famous Rando Gourmande, which will delight pleasure seekers. Each stage of the EBWT welcomes a Bosch e-MTB Challenge event, an international series offering a distinctive and amateur-friendly challenge with two difficulty options.
Thanks to its unique format, the E-Bike World Tour is fast becoming known as the “constructors’ championship.” Leading brands use this competitive platform to test and demonstrate their bikes’ performance, just as the automobile industry uses the Dakar Rally. Forming part of the UCI E-MTB Cross-Country Marathon calendar, EBWT’s multi-day races include 3,000-5,000m of climbing and more than 100km distance per day in technical terrain.
