The motocross freestyle star loves electric bikes
MAY 2014 / MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION 79
Electric Bike Fix
While the mountain bike world is still divided when it comes to electric bikes, we know of one big-name
rider who has truly embraced them. While
shooting photos at a Fontana Winter Series
event, we found the legendary Ronnie Renner
sitting on an electric mountain bike and talking
to Logan Binggeli, the KHS downhill star.
Renner was telling Logan how he had been
using his electric bike at Fontana to pre-ride
the course before taking his race run on his
normal human-powered downhill bike. Ronnie
was laughing about it, saying that in the time
it took the other racers to do one round trip,
with a practice run and a shuttle ride back up,
he could ride up and down the mountain five
times on his electric bike.
Having fun: One of the top freestyle
motocross riders in America, Ronnie Renner
likes electric mountain bikes so much, he’s
actually started selling them to his friends.
