The penultimate day of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) ended with Great Britain firmly placed to claim a historic Women’s World Trophy win.
Winning Day Five to extend their overall lead to almost fourteen minutes over nearest rivals France, Great Britain are now odds on favourites to secure a debut Women’s World Trophy win, along with a debut modern era World Trophy FIM ISDE victory.
Day Five was another tough day of racing at the FIM ISDE. Continuing to push the Women’s World Trophy competitors to their limits, a new course served up a fresh set of special tests in the mountains, while also completing the Airoh special test located close to the paddock twice.
Determined to put a virtual grasp on the winner’s trophy, Great Britain saw Jane Daniels (Fantic) top the individual classification to help them to a two minute and twenty-eight second win over France. Australia fended off Sweden to place third.
“It feels good to reach the end of Day Five,” said Daniels. “It’s been a tough week both mentally and physically, but the end is almost in sight. It’s hard to think of the win just yet, so let’s just get through Day Six safely and see what happens.”
The ninety-sixth edition of the FIM ISDE concludes with the traditional Day Six Final Cross test. Coverage is LIVE on the FIM ISDE Facebook page, starting at 08.06CET for the first of the Club Team category races. The Trophy categories take to the track from 13:55CET. Don’t miss it!
