The Enduro World Series have today announced that Round 2 of the 2019 season has been awarded to the Mountain Biking township of Derby in Tasmania's North East.
After a hugely successful event in 2017 that well and truly put the region in the top tier of Mountain Biking destinations worldwide, it was an easy decision to return for the next Australian visit by the EWS.
Event Management Solutions Australia will again deliver the event that will attract 500 riders, thousands of spectators and a strong contingent of international media. Event Director Ian Harwood said that return of the Enduro World Series, as well as the second tier Continental Series to be held in November of 2018, would not have been possible without the support of the Tasmanian Government and the community in Derby. Everyone had so much fun, despite some challenging weather, I am sure that this news will be welcomed by all of the teams and riders that make up the Enduro World Series.
It is expected that the event will continue to grow with the addition of a kid’s event as well as an expanded Challenger race for amateur riders.
The 2017 event saw an economic impact to the area well more than $1.5 million with visitor numbers almost doubling since the announcement of the 2017 event as well as winning the coveted “Specialized Trail of the Year award” for stage 2 Detonate.
