The Commission for Micromobility and Sport regulates and promotes the safe and sustainable development of micromobility in sport and urban micromobility.
The Commission will draw on the expertise gained in the development of the new eSkootr Championship, and from the wealth of knowledge its members bring from across the sport and mobility sectors, to champion and grow new categories of sustainable micromobility in sport.
Alex Wurz, a leading motorsport and road safety advocate is President of the Commission.
Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else does.
The Commission for Micromobility and Sport’s governance roadmap begins with the eSkootr Championship - the Pro level of this brand-new category of sport.
Guided by a unique team of experts with a deep knowledge of world championship categories of motorsport, the Commission’s sporting, technical, safety, medical and sustainability groups will shape the new rules and oversee their implementation and consistent application to ensure the sport is well-regulated and run in a fair, equitable, safe, sustainably responsible and inclusive manner.
Encouraging the development of grassroots competition is a key priority, creating an accessible and clear pathway from the grassroots to the elite level, with national and regional infrastructures to facilitate rider and team development. Building partnerships with mission-driven organisations who share the Commission’s values is fundamental to its approach.
Thought leaders from a wide range of backgrounds and committed to sport as a platform for purpose are being invited to join the Commission’s multi-stakeholder groups
