The Verbier E-bike Festival will take place for the 2nd time this summer in Val de Bagnes ! 4 days dedicated to e-biking! With 5 different activities on offer: E-bike test, Rando Gourmande, Discovery Trails, E-Tour du Val de Bagnes or Bosch E-MTB Challenge. Prize money of the event: 20.000 USD.
The E-Tour du Mont-Blanc (E-TMB) is the flagship event of the Verbier E-bike Festival. By invitation only, elite e-bike riders will take part in a 3 day, 300km race, (including 260km of single tracks) around Mont Blanc; through Switzerland, Italy, and France. The E-TMB is the only event in the festival reserved for experienced e-bikers, and is an exceptional e-race.
19 teams of competitors faced off on the slopes of the iconic Mont Blanc massif, tackling more than 300 kilometers and +12000m / -16000m. With up to 5’000m of climbing in a single day the stages would be virtually impossible on a regular mountainbike. The route of the event: Verbier - Courmayeur - Chamonix – Verbier.
And more E-MTB events are announced for the upcoming years: A series of international festivals to promote e-biking with 3 stops is planned for 2021 and 5 in 2022. The resort of Flachau, Austria will inaugurate the series at the end of June 2021. 1 month later, fans of the sport will gather in Tignes-Val d’Isère, France, with a third date in Verbier in mid-August.
