Saturday, April 2, 2016 will go down in history of Spanish cycling as the date of the first official MTB race for e-bikes, and our envoy Juan Jose Simon was there to capture the moment.
Juan and his colleagues made sure the public was able to ride an e-bike as well. A wide variety of Mondraker products was available, and the company made sure everyone could have a go in the bike test areas.
The e-bike race was limited to 9 participants, but showed great promise as a new type of race, that doesn’t aim to replace the conventional races, but rather to be an additional type of event cycling enthusiasts can enjoy. The number of e-bikes in use has definitely grown hugely in the past couple of years, so it’s only natural people want to see them used in races as well.
Mondraker managed to get the first place this time, so congratulations are in order, and we wish good luck to everyone in the upcoming races!
