E-Xplorer is an endurocross discipline featuring exclusively electric motocross bikes.
In 2024, there are two categories competing in E-Xplorer.
1) Hyperbikes, which enables prototype machines with batteries of up to 7kwh and a standard MX bike wheelbase to compete.
2) GTs, a shorter bike weighing below 112kg, with batteries producing up to 6kwh. The GTs are based on regular production models but are heavily modified for racing.
Endurocross combines the high speeds of motocross with the challenging obstacles synonymous with enduro racing. The tracks will be at least 400 meters long and range from 4 to 10 meters in width.
To challenge the riders' skills, the courses will feature a mix of tough obstacles such as rock piles and logs, as well as dirt jumps and bumpy sections to enhance the spectacle.
E-Xplorer races will take place in both the wilds of nature and the buzz of cityscapes. These races are not just about speed; they're about the rider's skill, strategy, and promoting the latest tech.
Here’s what to expect on race day:
1. Free Practice: A chance for riders to get to know the track.
2. Qualifying Rounds: Where riders race against the clock in ten-minute sessions to fight for the best gate selection in the main races.
3. Main Events: Three separate 10-minute races for both men and women follow the E-Xplorer opening ceremony.
4. Team Play-Off: The best four teams — based on their scores from earlier races — will face off in a sprint relay duel. Each rider does a lap, and the best teams go through to the finals.
E-Xplorer is all about pushing the boundaries with electric bikes, showing they can be just as thrilling as traditional ones, leading the way to a more sustainable future in racing.
