The long wait for this year's season opener is almost over. It's only a few more days until we officially kick off the season with the EWS race in Rotorua, New Zealand. Goodbye off-season! It's time to test the hard work that we put in the last few months on race day!

We are kicking off the season with Caro racing the Rotorua Air DH on Wednesday, March 20, 3:30 PM (NZDT) before both of us will be at the starting gate on Sunday, March 24th, 8:00 AM (NZDT) for the EWS #1. This Enduro event will be held as a one-day event.

We are looking forward to a great year of racing and other adventures and are excited to share our stories with you.

"I'm stoked to start the season healthy and fully healed from my wrist injury a few months ago. The last few weeks in New Zealand were great to re-build my confidence on the bike. We just had such a fun time riding a lot of different areas. New Zealand is always a special trip to me and I love the terrain here with the super-fast and playful single trails. Let's go!!" - Caro Gehrig

"I'm hyped to get the 2019 season under way. We have put in the work over the winter and I'm excited to see what we can do this year. Coming back to New Zealand is always special, the trails here are just first-class. We are going into the second season with our Norco Twins Racing team, a tailor-made program solely for us. Bike and gear are perfect and give us the confidence to ride at our very best." - Anita Gehrig

The twins will be racing the entire Enduro World Series aboard their new Norco Range 29er customized with Fox, Deity, WTB, Magura, Praxis and DT Swiss components. Find out everything you need to know about the Norco Range here.
