The race with fun factor

In 2018 the Bosch eMTB-Challenge has five stop offs in five different European countries: Italy, Switzerland, , Germany Austria and France. On July 14, Bad Goisern will not only host the competition but it’s much more about the shared experience and the Uphill-Flow in the terrain. The eMountainbike contest is suitable for all age groups and  performance levels.

 The 2018 newly adapted race format will guarantee even a greater fun factor and uphill flow in the terrain. Condition and technical skills are still as much as important as orientation and a clever battery management.
