WFSGI forms e-bike committee to work with UCI

Published July 6, 2018

BERN, Switzerland (BRAIN) — The World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry has formed a new e-bike committee focused on developing equipment regulations for competition.

“Following the recent announcement by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) that they will sanction e-bike racing in the near future, the WFSGI will be taking the progressive step of forming a committee to work in this area,” WFSGI stated in a release.

The committee will be launched at Eurobike, and the UCI and WFSGI have already started work around e-bikes, the federation added.

“The new e-bike decision is sure to be a fast-moving area with a lot of future developments in both the equipment and racing format, and I am very excited that the WFSGI and its members will be in a strong position to help the UCI take this initiative forward,” said Jeroen Snijders Blok, chairman of the WFSGI bicycle group and board member.
