From May 13 to 14, eSkootr Championship will officially debut to kick off the electric competition on board scooters. Now, although the 30 participating riders and the teams of the first season had been revealed, it was not known until now in which organization each one would race.
Nico Hülkenberg, Formula 1 driver, will have his team in the 100% electrified championship aboard the S1-X, where he will be joined by the talents of Spain’s Maria Bernabe, France’s Anthony Bernard and Britain’s Billy Morgan, Bronze medalist at the Olympic Snowboarding Games. Precisely, this team is the most recent to be announced as an official participant of the 2022 campaign.
On the other hand, 258 Racing will be the organization of boxer, Anthony Joshua, who will have under his command one of the most outstanding of the 30 riders: the British rider Tre Whyte, Bronze medalist at the BMX World Championships, who will ride alongside his countryman Wilfred Njuguna and the Italian Roberta Ponziani.
