After two successful years together, Bafang will continue the sponsoring partnership with
the Team in the next Olympic year. Both, Bafang and the Team, have the intention to cooperate together to Paris Olympic Games 2024.
In the past two years Bafang developed together with American Eagle and the riders of
the CST PostNL Bafang Mountainbike Racing Team, their first E-MTB and competed and
performed well in the UCI E-mountainbike racing class.
Dutch E-Mountainbike rider Kjell van den Boogert made a great debut in international EMountainbike, flying like an ‘Eagle’. Highlights were great international podium places at
the UCI World Cups in Albstadt and Italy, in the Wes Series and the Dutch National Title of 2020.
Because of the worldwide situation concerning Covid-19 the schedule of international EBike racing was quite different and left us just a very few races this season.
Luckily the UCI World Championships 2020 in Leogang was on the rescheduled program,
just like the Dutch National Championships E-Mountainbike, where Kjell van den Boogert
became National Dutch Champion E-Mountainbike 2020.

The feedback we get from the professional riders is very useful, we transform this into
improvements not only for the team products, but also for all our products in the mass
We very much look forward to continuing to work together; engineered to make you
Bart Brentjens, Team Director CST PostNL Bafang Mountainbike Racing Team:
“The process of developing a winning E-Mountainbike together with Bafang and
American Eagle has gone so fast over the past 2 years! It feels like we have just started.
Until now it has been an interesting and challenging project.
Not only me, but our XCO riders are all very excited about the American Eagle Bafang EMountainbike
that we have developed and they love to ride it. So much, that some of our
riders will also ride international E-Mountainbike competitions next year in addition to their regular program. It is good to see that the popularity of the E-Mountainbike is growing enormously and fast!
Not only with consumers, but also as a competitive sport. It is great to be able to
contribute to this and to be able to bring the E-Mountainbike bike to the attention
together with our partner Bafang. In the last period we have been able to gain a lot of
experience and knowledge. We are convinced that we can still improve.
The Team is ready to continue the journey with even more beautiful adventures”.
