This will be an exciting year for E-Bike racing. Hopefully we'll see a lot of coverage here.

Someday, someone will design a motor specifically for electric motorcycles. From what I've read, every design to date is compromised to some degree by adapting re-tasked motors.
Fun Facts to Know and Tell!

Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion.

Its.......A FACT!

We were planning a fairly comprehensive report from Infineon, but then only four teams made the race. Lots more to come, tho.

This a very exciting field from companies Amarok to Tesla. I think they've got the performance aspect sorted; now to just get the reliability & longevity solved there will finally be a viable product to compete with petrol vehicles.

Looking forward to future EV articles.
