Bosch and Troy Lee Designs Launch New BOOGALOO eMTB Race

Troy Lee Designs and Bosch eBike Systems racers to participate in the BOOGALOO—a Class 1 eMTB Race Series taking place at two of California’s premier mountain bike resorts: Big Bear Snow Summit and Mammoth Mountain.

The race series will be held on two unique courses specifically designed for eMTB racers. Racers can expect near vertical ascents, killer drops, obstacles, berms, and more that will take their eMTB to the limits of what they thought possible on two wheels. Each race will be divided into three separate classes: the Pro Class, the Bosch “Race of Champions” Class for amateur athletes, and an “Industry” class.

“Our brand has been at the forefront of a lot of cool new disciplines of bike racing and moto racing over the years and we somehow always luck out to find great partners that share our vision for fun, but also trying something new and different in racing. These pedal assist eBikes have changed my life, so I figure why not race these things!” Said Troy Lee, Founder and President of Troy Lee Designs.

“Based on the excitement and participation at last year’s Kamikaze Bike Games and Sea Otter Classic eMTB races, we think California is ready to take eMTB racing to the next level,” said Claudia Wasko, General Manager of Bosch eBike Systems Americas.

The series kicks off on July 23rd at Snow Summit in Big Bear, CA, in conjunction with the California Enduro Series and Crafts & Cranks Festival. The second leg of the series kicks off on September 16th at Mammoth Mountain, CA, in conjunction with the Kamikaze Games of 2017 USA Cycling Pro Gravity Tour.
