MotoE possibly cancelled

Seems all the bikes have been lost in a fire at Jerez.

I Ride: A bicycle.
I wonder how toxic the fire was seeing as they're battery bikes.

Myth Busters did a segment about lithium batteries catching fire in dump trucks. Just the pressure from trash compaction set the batteries on fire, and if there are a lot of batteries, the conflagration is intense. In addition, putting these fires out can be difficult. A Tesla was left to burn down on a California highway because the Fire Department couldn't stop the battery fire.

I certainly wouldn't like to find out what the black reek tasted like.
One electric vehicle on fire is a very dangerous business. A whole shed of them is as well being left to turn into a car park unfortunately.
