- We will use EWS, EWS100 concept for pro/am in EWS-E and replace the EWS80 with EWS-E50.
- EWS-E100 racers will need 2 batteries. EWS-E50 racers will be able to complete to course with only one battery (50% of the course)
- Races will be 6-7 special stages per day including one very short very technical climb as a special stage
- Same as EWS enduro rules, all special stages are timed and all special stages count towards the final time and therefore race result
- The course will be 3 loops (minimum of 2 different loops) with 2-3 special stages in each loop. Each loop will take about 1hr - 1:30hr to complete and with about 1000m climbing. So total bike riding time in a 1 day race will be circa 4hr and 3,000m climbing.
- Liaison times will be very tight, so we will award many small penalties for late starters, this is to bring the liaison into the race
- Each loop will be split with a 40 minute rest in the paddock (for battery change, mechanical assistance and athlete recovery)
- We will use our Queen Stage concept in EWS (1 stage carries bonus series points). These will be called Power Stages
- Riders are not allowed to carry spare batteries on their person (they can carry them on their bike)
- There will be no technical restrictions on batteries etc as we believe technology needs maximum opportunity to innovate and grow and it’s already moving at a very fast rate
- All bikes must be limited to EU regulations for e-bike/pedelec (25kmph)
- Walk function allowed but only in factory settings
