The historic ISDE event, often referred to as the ‰ÛÏEnduro Olympic Games‰Û
The Aussie pits are a hive of activity.
Team Australia has walked all of the 10 test tracks and has begun testing their bikes on the training track. Competitors will race a loop a day, five controls, race five tests and cover over 250km each day. The terrain has plenty of open wide grass tracks with scattered trees. There are plenty of technical sections throughout the track, but its mostly open and free flowing. Temperatures are fairly hot, up into the mid 30's.

Australia‰Ûªs greatest challenger will arguably come from the United States, the reigning champions. Set to defend their World Trophy title, team USA return to the ISDE with arguably the strongest four-rider team in the competition. With a strong Australian Senior World Trophy Team comprising of Joshua Green, Daniel Milner, Matthew Phillips and Daniel Sanders, the Aussies are sure to be in the running.

The Womens Wold Trophy Team and the undisputed queens of world Enduro, Australia‰Ûªs trio of Tayla Jones, Jemma Wilson, Jessica Gardiner are no doubt gunning for a fifth title in a row!
