Following a one-year absence, Great Britain are set to make a much-anticipated return to the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) in Portugal this November.
Unable to contest last year’s event in Chile, Great Britain – one of off-road motorcycling’s leading nations – are set to become a formidable presence in Portimao when the ninety-fourth edition of the Enduro’s premier event begins.
Great Britain has a rich heritage in Enduro and particularly the ISDE. Always a threat for the FIM World Trophy podium, they last visited it in 2016 when they finished as runner-up in Spain.
Previous success came when Great Britain raced to third overall in the FIM Junior World Trophy classification in Sardinia, Italy, while four-time FIM Enduro World Champion David Knight is the last British rider to win the event outright, in 2005.
With British riders currently heading the standings in the FIM Enduro World Championship, it is clear that Team GB poise a serious threat to defending FIM World Trophy champions Australia when they make their return to the FIM’s longest-running competition, in just over two months’ time.
The ninety-fourth edition of the FIM ISDE will take place in Portimao, Portugal from 11 to 16 November.
