The World e-Bike Series (WES), the unique and exclusive e-Mountain Bike Cross-Country World Cup for electrically assisted bikes, recognised by UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), will once again see our Magneti Marelli Checkstar network as Official Partner for the 2023 season.
During the various stages of this European-style championship, the brand representing our network of workshops will be clearly visible along each of the racetracks, and a team of young enthusiasts will be wearing our colours, proudly displaying the Magneti Marelli Checkstar - Hybrid & Electric concept. The fastest lap in each stage will be awarded the Magneti Marelli Checkstar Power Lap, which will also be presented at the end of the season to the male and the female riders with the most fast laps gained over the entire championship. What’s more, the races in the WES championship will be broadcast by the Eurosport channel, ensuring even more visibility towards the general public.
Our sponsorship of WES allows us on the one hand to present our Magneti Marelli Checkstar network to an ever-widening audience of enthusiasts, and on the other to stress how the network is ready to take on the challenges of electric mobility. With the Hybrid & Electric concept, our mechanics can draw on concrete support in terms of equipment, training and technical assistance, allowing them to work in a professional manner on hybrid and electric vehicles, offering car owners state-of-the-art services.
