It needs to be long and hard enough so the riders have to monitor their battery output carefully and wisely. No tech zones (although that may be a tough one go back to). Steep, very technical climbs as opposed to fire roads. Even some tiring pushing sections - not hike a bike obvs. Sections where they will be pedalling a 45-50lb bike against the ''gearbox' because they have hit the limiter. These will still favour the very fit, and physically strong, rider. Just thoughts

Take a look at Anneke Beerten's reports on her 2019 World Champs eBike race and what the track was like. Anneke isn't XC or washed up and has two legs.
