Day Two at the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) saw the United States once again top the Women’s World Trophy classification.

Determined to keep extending their lead in this year’s FIM ISDE, the United States were untouchable today, claiming a three minute and eight second victory over Great Britain.

Australia fought off host nation France by twenty seconds to take third.

In the overall classification, the United States are already looking favourites to successfully defend their Women’s World Trophy crown, holding a seven-minute advantage over Great Britain.

And while Great Britain are in turn a further seven minutes clear of France in third, the battle for the final step of the podium is much tighter.

Gaining ground on Day Two, Australia are now just fourteen seconds behind France. With multiple FIM ISDE victories to her name, Jessica Gardiner (Yamaha) is well-positioned to lead her fellow countrywomen in that podium battle with France.

“Starting last yesterday was tough as we had to overtake a couple of riders on each test, but today was much better,” said Gardiner.“With a clearer track we were able to keep on the gas a bit more.

“I have done enough FIM ISDE races to know that it is still very early in the race to think too much about the result. We haven’t even reached the halfway point yet, so anything can happen.

“Luckily we escaped the rain today, but it is raining pretty hard now, so maybe tomorrow will be interesting!”
