The Enduro World Series, the leading race series for Enduro mountain biking, is returning to Derby in northeast Tasmania. The exciting Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails will host round 2 of the 2019 series, and will be called Shimano Enduro Tasmania.
The Blue Derby trail network will be getting some new trails specifically for the event, and this is on top of the 85km of trails already on offer; the area has become a massive drawcard for bike riders from all over Australia following the success of Australia's inaugural EWS in 2017.
Riders will get to experience everything from fern forests to granite slabs as they take in the stunning views on offer.
Enduro Mountain Biking is an exciting format of racing, where riders compete against the clock on timed downhill runs throughout the day, traversing by bike from stage to stage.
Sunday sees the EWS action over seven stages. During the race there will be a race village with local food and drink. Spectators are encouraged to line the track to cheer on the worlds best riders. Stick around for the after party in the event village.
