    Surely it's just a case of opening another category?

    Doesn't make sense to me and actually appears to be very unfair.

    Just turn up and ride the route anyway, what they gonna do.

    What a lot of rules and regulations! I'd stick to Audax.

    It's the T&C's that you have to agree to, if it isn't in them then they can't enforce it, that's your contract, or at least that would be my stance

    Is the ride supported in case of a mechanical ?
    Maybe there could be issues fi an e bike dies roadside and the roving mechanics cant fix it .

    That's what I would do too, how are they going to find out anyway, are they going to check all the bikes??
    That is possible, some Ebike retailers, I know of Bosh, will invalidate the warranty if a non Bosh trained mechanic has touched the bike.
    Surely though, this would be at @jann71's own risk?

    My friends suggested I cover the battery with my jacket

    It's a closed road event.

    I have a Bergamont eHorizon 6

    Maybe it's because there is a timed king of the mountain stage.

    Why would you want to do a sportive on a Ebike? Surely the idea of a sportive is to test yourself. I have nothing against Ebikes at all, But cannot get my head round this one.
