After five long days of traditional enduro riding the surviving competitors will face one last and different challenge on day 6, namely the Final Cross Test, as the 2021 FIM International Six Days of Enduro comes to a close. The climax will take place on the permanent motocross circuit at Valle Scrivia in Cassano Spinola, province of Alessandria, Piedmont – Italy.

The riders will be grouped by class – C1, C2, C3, EW, E1, E2, E3 – and will line up against each other in a series of 4 laps for the Club Team Award and Women’s Trophy while the Junior and World Trophies will run 7 laps per heat, with some classes needing to be split over more than one heat where number of riders is high. Whilst out on track, after the gate drops on each heat, the riders will be racing head-to-head but it will be their race time rather than their finishing position that is the most important thing when they pass the chequered flag. Their race time will be added to their other test times from the week to determine their final result.

  • CLUB TEAMS (454 riders)
    5x Heat C1
    5x Heat C2
    3x Heat C3
  • WOMEN (24 riders)
    1x Heat
  • JUNIOR & WORLD (126 riders)
    2x E1
    1x E2
    1x E3

In amongst the racing, the traditional lunch break will offer even further entertainment with a special Scott signing session. Additionally, Honda Italy will use the interlude to show case the new CRF1100L Africa Twin 2022, with leading Dakar competitor and Team Honda HRC Rally rider Joan Barreda taking to the track on the striking new machine.

As ISDE 2021’s main partner, Honda has planned an extra entertainment for the fans: at 14:15, Joan Barreda, one of the Team Honda HRC Rally’s best rider, will do some laps on the new Africa Twin 2022 to greet the fans while showing everyone Honda’s beautiful maxienduro in its new striking graphics inspired by the CRF450 Rally that Joan usually rides at the Dakar.
