A number of high profile downhill riders, including Wyn Masters and Bernard Kerr, will be trying their hand at ebike racing at the inaugural ebike World Championships in Mont Sainte Anne tomorrow.
Why? Well, why not? Wyn is selected for the New Zealand squad for downhill and Bernard will be on-site with the Pivot team he manages. Both riders have previously been positive about ebikes and Wyn even made an edit on one.
The ebike race takes place on Wednesday and will be a 1.5-2 hour race on a 5.6km course. Riders should easily be able to recover before the downhill race on Sunday, plus it's a great opportunity to slip on the national jersey and represent your country and sponsors.
With ebike racing still in its infancy and a mixed bag of riders in attendance, the competition should be wide open. Whatever happens, a few stoppies or wheelies will make the race a whole lot better than the FIM's recent attempt
