The eSkootr Championship™ (eSC) has confirmed the location of the opening round of the world’s first-ever micromobility racing series - the iconic venue, Printworks, on 14 May. Among the riders selected to compete are multiple World Champion and former Team GB speed skater, Elise Christie, BMX World Championship bronze medalist, Tre Whyte, and Olympic Games Snowboard bronze medalist, Billy Morgan.
Plans for the inaugural round of the brand-new eSkootr Championship were revealed at a launch event held today at The Shard, where a number of the riders joined eSC’s co-founders in providing a taste of the unique racing experience spectators and TV viewers from around the world can expect in six weeks’ time.
Located in the heart of London, Printworks was selected as the venue to reflect eSC’s mission to inspire a new movement for safer, sustainable and more liveable cities. eSC is a fan-first sport and its race locations will provide the perfect backdrop for a spectator and entertainment experience like never before, with each event embracing the cities’ urban culture and associated lifestyle.
A 600-metre specially designed track will weave its way in and out of Printworks in front of fans from across the Capital and further afield, who will be among the first to see the 30 eSC riders race at speeds of over 100km/h on the specially designed S1-X eSkootr for the first time.
