3 E-DAYS TRIAL SANTIGOSA
05 April 2017

ALBERT BOSCH WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE XLVI "3 DAYS TRIAL SANTIGOSA" WITH A 100% ELECTRIC MOTORBIKE OF THE BRAND ELECTRIC MOTION

  • It will be the first participation of a non-child electric motorcycle in a 3 days endurance trial
  • The ELECTRIC MOTION motorcycle brand proves that the trial can be very efficient and funny without noise and without polluting emissions
  • The race will be held on 14, 15 and 16 April in Sant Joan de les Abadesses (Girona)

Both the pilot and the brand, want to take advantage of this emblematic and historic event, to prove both electric vehicles in general and electric trial bikes in particular, are already a reality, and can be presented as a perfectly valid alternative to enjoy a lot of an exciting sport, which takes place in the natural environment, with minimal impact due to the total absence of emissions and noise.

The challenge of these bikes is neither performance nor reliability, which are already at the highest level, but only the autonomy of their batteries, which is located in about 90 minutes of circulation in race mode, which is recharged 100% in 75 minutes . Completing the test, apart from it's technical and physical demands, will require an exhaustive energy management; and therefore will have several batteries throughout the circuit. For that reason, taking part in a long-term test like this, is a real challenge: 3 days with a circuit of 40Km and 30 sections per day is an exciting project for this pilot/adventurer and this brand 100% committed to electric mobility.

Both Albert and the brand Electric Motion, are aware that in this participation they cannot have any ambition of sports result. Albert has an average level sufficient to face this challenge, but not to raise any objective in the overall ranking. But it will be useful to show that the majority of the practitioners of this sport, lovers and respectful of the natural environment, can enjoy a lot of their hobby without relying on fossil fuels. In another area, the brand is also demonstrating that the electric motorcycle can be fully competitive, participating in races of the highest level in the French championship and some races of the world championship. In the "3 Days Trial Santigosa" the goal is only to test the motorcycle in a long and complex race, and to demonstrate that the electric motorcycle is already a valid alternative at the moment for all the fans.

Albert will have Alain Goffin (Distributor of the brand in Spain) as an assistant during the test, which will follow him with another electric motorcycle model ESCAPE of the same brand, which has a battery with more autonomy to be able to make longer off-roads, and not requiring a weight as minimized as the competition model.
