The 2019 FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) has come to a close in Portugal with the United States claiming FIM World Trophy victory.

In what has proved a successful ninety-fourth edition of the FIM’s longest running motorcycle race, the result marks the United States’ second win following their debut victory in Spain in 2016.

Offering the USA their greatest challenge, RecoveR8 Team Australia ended this year’s FIM ISDE as runner-up.

Claiming third overall, Italy will look to improve on that result when they host the event in 2020.

While glory did not favour the Australians in the FIM World Trophy class, they did stride to victory in the FIM Junior World Trophy competition.

Proving themselves as the team to beat all week, they never faltered through Portugal’s unrelenting terrain.

Marching on to victory on the sixth and final day of racing, the newly crowned world champions were joined on the podium by the United States and Spain in second and third respectively.

Ensuring further celebrations for the nation, USA raced to victory in the FIM Women’s World Trophy category.

Despite Germany leading at the end of day one, USA took control of proceedings on day two and were never headed.

It was a successful FIM ISDE debut, Great Britain joined USA and Germany on the podium for third.

The ninety-fifth edition of the FIM ISDE will take place in Rivanazzano Terme, Italy from 31 August to 5 September 2020.
