Open to all abilities

The eMTB Challenge will split participants into 'Amateur' and 'Advanced' categories. The 'Advanced' participants will face increasingly difficult sections where only those who combine skillful riding technique and good orientation with a high level of fitness and intelligent battery use will secure a place among the best.

The Bosch eMTB Challenge has brought eMTB riders of different abilities together since 2017. To take part, participants must possess a good level of eMTB riding technique as well as previous trail experience. The competition format combines a challenging but enjoyable ride across varied trails in a way that promotes interaction between the athletes of the eMTB community.
