Motorcycling Australia update

News March 2017

Author: Media/Friday, March 17, 2017/Categories: State News

Motorcycling Australia (MA) is now calling for expressions of interest for Australian Team riders for the 2017 International Six Day Enduro (ISDE), held in Brive, France, August 28 - September 2, 2017.

ISDE is a prestigious enduro event with significant Australian successes and triumphs in recent years, including the Womens Senior Trophy Team in 2016 for a fourth consecutive year and a clean sweep by all three (Senior, Women’s and Junior) teams in 2015, a feat never before accomplished.  
 The prospects for Australia mounting a significant challenge at this year’s event are exciting and MA is looking to finding the talent to achieve success in 2017.  As the oldest Off-Road motorcycle championship on the FIM calendar, ISDE is a true test of man, machine, difficult road conditions and reliability.
Riders wishing to apply for an Australian Team position in this year's ISDE, will need to consider that while MA will contribute some funding to the team, there may be associated costs involved to selected riders.
The expected time away for this year's FIM International Six Day Enduro will be approximately 17 days - departing on the 20th of August and returning on the 5th September 2017. 

Team Australia is calling for ISDE World Championship riders for the following three classes:
Senior Trophy Team: 4 riders
Junior Trophy Team: 3 riders
Womens Trophy Team: 3 riders

Application forms are available to download here. Applications must be returned by COB Friday, 7th of April 2017.
Applications and enquiries should be addressed to:
