An extreme racing league aiming to revolutionize the world of electric unicycles (EUCs) is making its world debut in Vancouver this month.

Concord Pacific Place will host TEF1 (The Electronic Force 1) on Sunday, September 17, with free festivities for the whole family and thrilling races throughout the day.

According to organizers, the event is just the beginning of what they have planned with personal electric vehicles (PEVs).

“Our Vancouver event is a pilot for what we hope will grow into a fascinating and thrilling sport for racing and e-ride enthusiasts,” said TEF1 in an email to Daily Hive. “As a pilot, we will be hosting an EUC race which will include qualifying rounds, followed by a final race to determine the winners of the event.

“However, our long-term plan is to host races for all types of PEVs, such as e-bikes, e-scooters, and electric longboards.

TEF1 Race Day will feature electric unicycles racing down 300 ft straights and challenging turns for a chance to win thousands of dollars in cash prizes. The top five racers will also automatically qualify for the league’s championship event.
