First up for the 2019 season will be a trip down under to the incredible trails of Rotorua, New Zealand.
This North Island venue has proved a real hit with riders from across the globe, with many now travelling to the iconic trails of the Whakarewarewa Forest outside of racing for their off-season training. With a huge and ever growing mountain biking community in Rotorua, it’s little wonder the series decided to come back for a third time.
