Paris Court Sides With French Cycling Federation in eMTB Trademark Battle With French Motorcycling Federation
'Class 1' is doing a lot of work in that sentence. Can a legit Class 1 ebike be discerned from non-Class 1 ebikes visually, or with any other simple, non-intrusive test? If not, then you set up a policy framework with no enforcement mechanism but the honor system, which ain't great

‘I Started Seeing the Good in Life’ - What Do Mountain Biking’s New ‘Pandemic Riders’ Think of the Sport so Far?
Thank you for choosing to humanize a group of riders too often discussed as a marginal increase in quarterly revenues or as a trail nuisance by the entitled gatekeeper crowd

EWS Research on Injuries Published in International Journal of Sports Medicine
I'm an adjunct professor of human physiology, which is about as lowly an academic rank as it's possible to posses, but here's my quick summary of the paper -- in EWS racing, concussion is the most commonly reported injury, but the consequences to the riders are hard to generalize for a number of reasons. Shoulder-collarbone-area injuries together cause the highest number of days off the bike. Future directions include getting a handle on all the variability surrounding concussion diagnosis and response, especially the high rate of getting right back on the bike, and the recognition that EWS riders aren't frequently wearing a kind of armor or brace that's really effective are reducing rates of shoulder-collarbone type injuries.
