The first round of the 2019 Enduro World Series stopped in Rotorua, New Zealand where the team showed good form with a victory in the men's Master 40+, and two second place stages in the Elite category.

In the elite category, Jose Borges earned two formidable second-place finishes, the first in stage 1 and the other in stage 5, where he narrowly missed first place by a slim 0.66. More importantly, Borges closed out the event in 11th place. He demonstrated good speed and, without a series of crashes in the other stages, Borges would have easily landed in the top 5.

Alex Cure had a solid race but could have ridden a bit more aggressively to do better than 32nd place.

In men's Master 40+ category, Karim Amour won the overall event by capturing three wins out of five stages. Amour scored an extra 30 points by winning the queen stage. With this victory, Amour announced that he plans to keep his crown by doing a threepeat!
