Tasmania is set to host the second round of the Enduro World Championships next year, as the series makes it way back to the southern hemisphere.

Derby will once again host the world's best enduro riders, who voted the Detonate trail at Blue Derby as the best of the 2017 season.

“We are so excited to be able to bring Shimano Enduro Tasmania back to Derby," said EMS Australia race director, Ian Harwood. "2017 was such a roller coaster, we cannot wait to make 2019 the whole theme park.”

Set to follow the season opener in Rotorua, NZ, the event kicks off on March 30 next year.

The series bypasses the southern hemisphere in 2018, despite Aussie Sam Hill holding the #1 plate. Last year's race was won by   French duo Adrien Dailly (men) and Isabeau Courdurier (women). The best placed Aussie bloke was Sam Hill (below in last year's final race) in third, while Rowena Fry finished tenth in the women's division.
