Pinkbike Poll: What Type of Bike Would You Add to Your Quiver?

E-Bike races should be done like Enduro racing over a number of days over vast distances on hard terrain, uphills that would be nigh on impossible on a normal bike.

"All bikes are fun" spot on, amazing how many people seem to disagree with that.
Good stuff Wyn.

Thanks Wyn your the best.

The XC style mass start, technical climbs and enduro downhill sections make for a good format that highlights that the bike is still only part of the equation. Not just anybody can hop on a pedal assist and race these. Like he said, maybe more DH folks will give it a rip and it will evolve into a distinct style.

Don’t worry. The format will evolve over time as the technology grows and people start to figure out what these things really are. The GNCC Ebike races are proper technical, run on the same hare scramble tracks as the Motos and are getting a lot of attention because of it. Some pro moto guys have even transferred sports because of it. One of the top guys at the Ebike worlds came from that series!
Just wait. This stuff will become legit sooner than later and you will be dying to give it a try.

Yep E-Bikes are the new F-1 of MTB. It’s definitely the future of the sport XC, DH, and Enduro.

Lmao you got downvoted out of viewable for linking to another real event.
Such a weird egofilled circle jerk around laz-e-bike racing. Which you know every 5'8” 275 lb "big boned" shredder will never be trying.

: So DH racing is represented by the Sea Otter "DH" track?
