The E-Bike World Tour 2022 Calendar
In 2022 we visited Flachau - Austria, Tignes & Val d’Isère high up in the French Alps and returned to Verbier for the E-Tour du Mont-Blanc. Each race was split into long-timed stages over 2-3 days with tech zones where battery exchanges are available. This creates a unique format in e-mountain biking. A 3-day race will likely cover around 300km of single trails, in a mix of lush forests and high alpine scenery. Riders will race individually in Flachau and Tignes & Val d'Isère, in Verbier for the E-Tour du Mont-Blanc riders will join forces in teams of 2. Riders collect points and battle for the overall win of the E-Bike World Tour.

The E-Bike World Tour offers all riders who accept the challenge of multi-day races. Whether it's high alpine scenery or lush forests, look forward to riding different terrains from stage to stage. And to spice things up a bit, there’s a bit of hike-a-bike here and there.

What happens on site
Race accreditation happens the day before the start. Riders pick up their race numbers and get bikes, spare batteries and chargers marked.
At race accreditation all bikes will be checked for compliance with the rules (25km/h). Random checks will also be performed before each race start. The top 3 riders/teams’ bikes will be checked after the finish line of each day.
The timed stages will include a mix of climbs and technical descents. Neutralised sections in between the stages may be used for safety while crossing roads, villages or sharing busy trails with hikers.
Battery exchange usually happens in the tech/feed zone. Spare batteries will be marked and transported by the organiser and available for exchange during the 30-minute break. That means that the clock stops as soon as a rider/team enters the tech zone and restarts 30 minutes later. Food, drinks and Bosch mechanical support is available in this area as well as team support.
Riders are self-sufficient during the day, but are accompanied by the safety and rescue teams as well as a large number of videographers and photographers. All riders have access to the photos and videos at the end of each day.
