Leccy Tech The rider line-up for the upcoming eGrandPrix race - the world’s first zero-emissions motorcycle GP – has now been finalised.

Taking place on 12 June during the Isle of Man TT - and on the famous Mountain Course - the competition will feature 20 e-bikes. The total’s just slightly down on the 24 bikes hoped for back in April.

Several notable riders are included in the line-up, including Olie Linsdell - winner of the 2007 Northwest 200 400cc race, and Tom Montano - who previously raced the fastest MV Agusta in the history of the Isle of Man TT races.

Dan Kneen - who made history in the 2008 Manx Grand Prix by becoming the first person ever to win three races in one week - will also be present on 12 June. Paul Owen - who you may remember from videogame TT Superbikes Real Road Racing Championship - is also set to race.

Isle of Man resident and TT race veteran John Crellin will also take part, riding for the India-based TORK team.

A video – available online – has also been released showing the race’s German team in preparation.

The eGrandPrix’s organiser – TTXGP, has also announced that somebikes taking part on 12 June will make an appearance next month at the annual American Motorcyclist Association’s Vintage Motorcycle Days festival in Lexington, Ohio- in an effort to spread the message across the pond. ®
