Some friends of ours in France, Olivier (who was on the cover of Sideburn 21 with his Harley WR) and Vincent, founder of Wheels and Waves, put on a stylish, small scale MX race for electric bikes, in the centre of St Tropez, France. I don't know chic St Tropez, but I'm guessing it would have been impossible to get permission for an event using regular petrol-burners. This is one of the aspects that has always got us the most excited, the ability to ride without incurring the grief of noise complaints.
The event featured the bikes of Swedish company Cake. Watch the short recap film to see the track nestled in the centre of the city.
