With the 2023 FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) now just over three months away, support for the event – that has been confirmed that it will run as always planned from 6-11 November in Argentina – is growing daily.

So far twenty-eight nations from five continents are represented with entries from twelve Latin American countries demonstrating the popularity of the sport in this region.

With the registration process remaining open until 31 August, the number of pre-registered riders for the ninety-seventh edition of this World-famous event – which currently stands at four-hundred-and-fifty-three – is expected to increase considerably in the lead-up to the closing date.

At present competitors from Latin American countries comprise seventy per cent of pre-registered riders, confirming the strong support for the event in the region. The competitors will set-off from the event headquarters at the Circuito San Juan Villicum in the northern city of San Juan, that lies to the east of the Andes Mountain range.

Argentinean riders make up thirty-eight per cent of the pre-registered entries received so far, a figure that is much higher than usual for a host nation, but they will face stiff opposition from the World’s leading Enduro nations.

Included among the favourites are the defending World Trophy and Women’s World Trophy teams from Great Britain and while unfortunately Australia will not be defending the Junior World Trophy on this occasion (or field teams in the other two main classes) there will be strong challenges in this category from, among other countries, Italy and the Czech Republic who finished second and third last year in France.

Other leading nations expected to excel in Argentina include, but are not limited to, Sweden, Canada, the USA, France, Germany and Spain.

With exceptional terrain awaiting the ever-growing entry list, the ninety-seventh edition of the ISDE in Argentina is set to be a memorable one.
