Also of note, the Giant Toa Enduro presented by CamelBak has just 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. Racers must be Enduro Mountain Bike Association (EMBA) members in order to collect EWS Global Rankings points. Also new for this year, the winner of each official EWS category at an EWS Qualifier (providing the racer is an EMBA member) will be automatically added to the EWS Reserved List and eligible for priority registration for any of the 2019 EWS rounds. The Giant Toa Enduro presented by CamelBak in Rotorua is one of only three New Zealand venues that have been designated as 2018 EWS Qualifier Series events.
