Event description
Welcome to Europe's most exciting e-bike adventure, returning to the UK for the 2nd time in Summer 2021…

About this Event

You can look forward to varied trails against an impressive scenic backdrop. On average, you’ll have to cover some 35 kilometres and ascend around 1,000 metres. Riding technique will count just as much as orientation, fitness and intelligent battery management*. The stages, which offer a mix of uphill and downhill sections, are ridden against the clock without any prior training runs. In the transfer stages, the emphasis is on good orientation rather than just speed. It’s a real voyage of discovery!

The trails are designed for all levels of experience, whether you are a high-end professional or an e-bike newbie. Just choose from the two different categories; Advanced or Amateur.

*you should comfortably be able to complete the course with 1 fully charged battery – used wisely!

"Just taking part in the first ever Bosch eMTB Challenge was a great experience. A fantastic course with stunning scenery and what a place to stop for lunch added to what was the help and encouragement from course marshals," Phil Repton, 2019 Rider

Entry options

From this season onwards, you'll start in two competition categories:

AMATEUR

 In the "Amateur" category, the technical difficulty is somewhat lower so that hobby riders with some MTB experience can participate.

ADVANCED

The “Advanced” category is mainly intended for experienced mountain bikers, you will be tasked with an additional, more demanding stage. You'll also be required to ride a larger loop – a test of both your fitness and technical skills, where smart battery management will also be essential.

 TEAM

Furthermore, there will be a gender and team ranking. A team can comprise between three and six members from the "Amateur" and "Advanced" categories. The three fastest stage times for each team will then count in the overall rankings.
