eBikes Take To Mammoth Mountain


For the second year in a row, the Mammoth Kamikaze Bike Games added The Boogaloo eBike race Presented by TLD and Bosch to the action-packed weekend. The high elevation course featured jumps, berms, a bridge and of course, electric mountain bikes. The Pro purse for this event included $1000 for 1st place. Second place received  $850 and third got $600. Fourth place was awarded $400 and fifth, $200. All of the pro racers got to keep an A1 custom Boogaloo helmet and the top five finishers took home a Bosch power drill. The rules, however, specified that all riders had to use a class-1 e-bike. So just like us, you’re probably wondering what a class-1 e-bike is. Well, it’s described as this:

What is a Class 1 eMTB?
Class 1 eMTB is a specific classification for sustainable use on any trail, path or riding area. Class 1 eMTB models are defined as “a bicycle with fully operable pedals, and an electric motor under 750 Watts peak power that must be pedaled to activate the motor and that ceases to provide power above 20 mph.”

This year’s race had many contenders looking to take the top prize and brought a level of seriousness to this fun race. Below are some of our favorite photos from the Boogaloo. Enjoy.
