The axial acceleration of electron rings is investigated in the presence of an azimuthal field for the pure magnetic acceleration in an expanding magnetic field. It is shown that with this field present, the expanding field is replaced by a cusp field and the full electron energy which is originally stored in the transverse motion of the electrons can be converted to energy of axial motion.
