North America’s first ever electric, gender neutral, CAKE Worlds Race has been completed
Professional rider Josh Mosiman was crowned North American champion, after a full-weekend of electric motorcycle racing in Del Mar, CA. The CAKE Worlds Race now throttles on to Europe, continuing to demonstrate the virtues and opportunities offered by the all-electric racing series.
CAKE the Swedish maker of premium lightweight, electric motorcycles, today acknowledged the winners of this year’s first CAKE Worlds Race - the first ever to take place in North America. After a packed weekend of clean, electric racing in CA’s Del Mar, professional MXA Test Rider Josh Mosiman was crowned North American 4X champion, with Dylan Gaszak securing first place in the amateur class. Racing her way to 9th place, Ashley Fiolek became best female rider and last year’s global champion, Seth Stevens, ended up 3rd. Together they will represent the United States in the CAKE Worlds Finals, later this year.
“I had so much fun! This was my second experience riding an electric bike, and first time racing one. I was honored to be invited, had a ton of fun being on the track with everyone and really enjoyed meeting so many new friends. To win the final race was the cherry on top”, said North American 4X Champion Josh Mosiman.
Ashley Fiolek, best female rider of the race, added;
”I had a great time on Saturday bringing my amazing race cake bike to a victory!”
A clean, quiet alternative for the future
CAKE Worlds was created to demonstrate how the benefits of Cake’s electric motorcycles are able to transform two-wheeled racing, offering a future-proofed alternative to the receding world of fossil fueled racing. The silent, zero-polluting motorcycles are raced on tight, spectator-friendly tracks - that in turn can be built cost-efficiently in urban environments, further lowering the bar of entry to the sport. The 4X format is additionally gender neutral, meaning that women race alongside men, on equal terms – another first in the world of two-wheeled racing.
“CAKE Worlds is all about spreading the joy of bike riding, proving that it is inclusive while showing that it’s possible to enjoy motorbike racing without polluting or disturbing the local community. With 70 percent of all motorsport tracks having closed their doors in the past 15 years, mainly due to issues of noise and pollution, we see a clear opportunity to establish a new racing format that everyone can enjoy", explained Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE.
The CAKE Worlds Finals will be held at the Fox Raceway in Pala, CA, later this year. There, the fastest CAKE riders in North America will face their European counterparts, who in turn will qualify in CAKE Worlds events held throughout Europe this summer.
