BREAKING NEWS: 95TH INTERNATIONAL SIX DAYS OF ENDURO CANCELED

After discussions between the FIM and the local organising committee of the 2020 FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) in relation to the ongoing Coronavirus disease pandemic, the USDE (previously known as the ISDT) has been moved to 2021—which sounds like a postponement, but is actually a cancellation of the 2020 ISDE. Since the 2020 ISDE was scheduled for late August and early September in Italy, which is the hardest hit by the coronavirus epidemic the oldest event in the FIM international calendar, the decision was made to hold the 95th edition of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro from August 30 to September 4, 2021.

This is bad news for Team USA. In 2019 the American riders had their best ISDE ever. Taylor Robert and Kailub Russell went 1-2 in the E2 (450cc) class, Ryan Sipes was second in the E1 (250cc) class and Steward Baylor was third in the E3 (500cc) class. Together, they topped the World Trophy competition for only the second time in U.S. history. On top of that, Rebecca Sheets, Brandy Richards and Tarah Gieger won the Woman’s Trophy for the U.S. The top club team was Ricky Russell, Dante Oliveira and Austin Walton, also for the U.S. And the Junior Trophy team (for riders 23 years old and younger) of Grant Baylor, Ben Kelley and Josh Toth was second overall.
