In a groundbreaking move for the offroad racing community, one Virginia Offroad Series, VXCS (Virginia Cross Country Series), has announced the introduction of an Open Electric class for the 2024 season. This innovative step marks a significant milestone in the evolution of offroad racing, providing electric dirt bike enthusiasts with a platform to showcase their skills.


Traditionally, offroad racing has been dominated by motorcycles powered by internal combustion engines. However, with advancements in electric vehicle technology, electric dirt bikes have emerged as viable alternatives, offering numerous advantages in performance, environmental impact, and overall experience. Despite their potential, electric dirt bikes have often been overlooked in mainstream racing circuits, needing more dedicated classes or opportunities for competitive racing.


Recognizing the growing interest in electric offroad vehicles and the need for inclusivity within the racing community, VXCS has taken the initiative to create the Open Electric class. This class welcomes riders of electric dirt bikes to participate in VXCS events, competing against one another on equal footing and demonstrating the capabilities of electric-powered offroad machines.
