Giant Toa Enduro presented by CamelBak

Toa Enduro presented by CamelBak

Riders competing in the Giant Toa Enduro presented by CamelBak will get the chance to explore this magical land filled with smoking geysers, lush rainforest and some of the most challenging singletrack the Southern Hemisphere has to offer.

For 2018, riders will have the option to select either the 4 stage or 6 stage  race.

The 6 stage Giant Toa Enduro presented by CamelBak has been designated as an Enduro World Series Qualifier Series race, meaning racers competing in the event will be eligible to collect EWS Global Ranking points, and will have an opportunity to qualify for priority registration for all rounds of the 2019 EWS.

The 4 stage shuttle assisted race is every rider’s opportunity to experience the Giant Toa Enduro in a more relaxed, fun format without biting into the full meal deal right out of the gate.
