With less than three weeks to go until the official debut of eSkootr Championship, the category announced the arrival of a new team: 258 RACING, which is backed by two-time gold medalist and World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Anthony Joshua OBE.
258 RACING will be one of 10 teams participating in the championship, with three riders representing the brand. The electric scooters will take to the track May 13-14 at Printworks London, starting a new chapter in sustainable sports as the first and only electrified skateboard racing series.
“I really enjoy venturing into opportunities, businesses and in this case new sports. I’m a fan and I’m looking forward to seeing how the championship develops over time. I hope, where I can, to add a little magic and help the team and the series realize its potential,” said Anthony Joshua.
