The WES UCI E-Mountain Bike Cross-Country World Cup is set to ignite with an exhilarating feature, the “Fassi Holeshot.” This award is presented to the first woman and man rider to cross the line of the first turn of each race in first position.
In recognition of their starts, the riders who record the highest number of fastest starts throughout the season will be eligible for a prize money of 500 euros.
This incentive adds an extra element of competition to the World Cup, further driving the riders’ determination to achieve outstanding starts in every race, setting the tone for an adrenaline-fueled battle. But the rewards don’t end there.
In the scenario of a rider achieving a perfect score, meaning recording the Fassi Holeshot in every single race of the 2023 Calendar, they will receive an additional prize of 500 euros.
