Yeti EP Racing go on the hunt

1 year ago

Winning any UCI Mountain Bike World Series round is tough but E-Enduro (E-EDR) is comfortably one of the toughest formats. The myth of ‘e-bikes make things easy’ is quickly dispelled as soon as you see a racer take off from the bottom of one stage on full power to make their start time at the top of the next one. Times are unbelievably tight and the racing extremely physical. And then there’s the arms race. The old adage that racing bettering the breed is no more evident anywhere than in E-EDR as the world’s biggest brands and manufacturers push the bleeding edge of what the latest tech can do. There is no test session or CAD program that can produce the stresses and strains that the world’s fastest racers can conjure up in the heat of battle. 

To mark the start of the new season, Yet Shimano EP Racing have released a four-part series chronicling their 2022 race season and their quest for that elusive top step. The even better news is that they’ve done the right thing and released all the episodes at once, you can watch them here

Excited to go racing in 2023? Good. The UCI Mountain Bike E-EDR World Cup kicks off this season in Pietra Ligure, part of the Finale Outdoor Region, Italy. You can follow along with all the action on GCN+, Eurosport and discovery+ plus lots of free content on the UCI Mountain Bike World Series YouTube channel.
