“Turning to new specialities,” UCI’s press release states, “the e-mountain bike, snow bike and pump track have been integrated into the UCI Mountain Bike Regulations.” While there are no details yet on what exactly e-mountain bike world championships will look like, the announcement clearly states that “the first edition will take place during UCI mountain bike world championships in Mont-Sainte-Anne.”

“I also welcome the integration of new specialities into the UCI Mountain Bike Regulations,” UCI President David Lappartient declared, adding, “These show that cycling is a dynamic sport that continues to evolve. The UCI encourages these evolutions to grow cycling globally.”
