The 2021 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup Calendar is set—well, at least as set as anything can be in the era of COVID-19 government restrictions. There will be seven MotoE World Cup rounds in 2021, with a double-header finishing off the season at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on September 18 and 19. The season kicks off at the Spanish Grand Prix at Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto on May 2.Jordi Torres will be the defending 2020 MotoE World Cup titleholder. Torres earned the title through consistent finishes, scoring top-six points at every round. Matteo Ferrari and Dominique Aegerter both had more wins than Torres. However, disasters at the penultimate race for Ferrari and Aegerter at Le Mans gave Torres the opportunity to take the championship, and he pounced on it. Torres rides for the Pons Racing 40 team.
As always, the entire field will be racing Energica Ego Corsa electric-powered motorcycles. The races are action-paced 15-minute sprints. In seven races in 2020, there were five different winners and nine different riders on the podium.

This week, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the all new Ducati Monster. Big changes have been made by Ducati–has the company ruined the considerable heritage of the iconic Monster–or are the changes worth it? In the second part of the show, we chat with Nick Ienatsch, Founder and Head Instructor at the Yamaha Champions Riding School. He says: “We aim to change your riding life by introducing you to Champions Habits: The techniques, approaches, skills, and the mindsets of the best riders in the world. These Champions Habits are the foundation of safety and consistency to whatever speed you ride, in any venue on any bike. Street riders, this is just as much for you as track riders.
