EMTB-Race

The big trend of the e-movement will find its place in Grächen. Fun and adventure will be in the foreground. In the E-MTB Challenge, elements from enduro, trial and orientation races will be combined with an electric tailwind.

Target audience

The tracks are designed in such a way that they are easy to ride for experienced hobby bikers and at the same time challenging for professionals. Designed and adapted to different performance levels, this event is aimed at the entire spectrum of mountain bikers. The E-MTB Challenge thus offers maximum fun factor for E-Mountainbiker of every age and performance class (from 14 years). E-Mountainbikers experience common riding fun on the trails and on the transfer stages and can let off steam on the stages.

Format

The E-MTB Challenge scores above all with versatility. Drivers have to cope with an average of around 30 kilometres and up to 1,000 metres of altitude difference. Driving technique and orientation are just as important as fitness and clever battery management. The so-called stages, a mixture of different uphill and downhill routes, are driven without prior training. On the transfer routes, on the other hand, it is not a matter of speed, here a good orientation ability is advantageous: Along the route, various orientation points must be found. The driver with the fastest total time wins.
