It does seem that ebike racing is the antithesis of UCI human powered racing. The UCI has numerous rules on weight, frame design, pits and spare wheels and bikes designed to keep racing between the humans and not the equipment. I’m not as opposed to ebikes as I used to be and really it’s more the hard push some people had that was telling me essentially that climbing is not fun and only going down was fun. I take pride in my climbing. I like that hard climbs reduce the likelihood of seeing more riders out on certain trails. In many places I don’t think the sport needs to grow. In the really big picture I think humans need to see that unrestricted growth, of both the economy and population is the cause of nearly all the problems on the planet.
