BULLS and Bosch team up to host the 4th Annual eMTB race at the 2019 Sea Otter Classic. This year’s eMTB race boasts an improved course with new added features and challenges, the new course is guaranteed to test the legs and lungs of even the best riders – Scheduled for four laps, each 2.5-mile lap features 500 feet of climbing.

The first ascent takes riders on a haul up the hill’s main face, while the second is a longer and more technical switchback climb—running alongside the Dual Slalom Course. The downhill singletrack sections will once again be fast and flowing with many obstacles along the way including two rock gardens and the “Gravel Speed Trap”—a gravel section designed to stop race cars going more than 200mph.

“We’re looking forward to this being the most challenging and competitive eMTB race yet in our inaugural year as Sea Otter’s Electric Bike sponsor,” said Adam Anderson, Marketing Manager at Bulls Bikes USA. “It’s great to see racers of all ages and skill levels race alongside the world’s best as Team BULLS brings three of its pros from Germany to join forces with Christian Husband, BULLS Bikes USA’s first North America-based pro.” “Class 1 eMTB racing at Sea Otter Classic gets better each year,” said Claudia Wasko, Vice President & General Manager of Bosch eBike Systems Americas. “With the addition of Bulls as title sponsor, a new timing system, and more fantastic eMTB models on the market with improved geometry, bigger suspension and integrated batteries, this year’s race is looking to be our best yet!”
