Aussie Riders Reflect on Opening Day Of 2017 ISDE

Posted:

Day One of the 92nd running of the FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Brive, France saw Australia‰Ûªs World Trophy Team achieve third behind the French and Finland, at the conclusion of Day One.

The Women‰Ûªs World Trophy Team currently sits in an impressive second. Unfortunately the Junior Team lost too much time yesterday and cannot progress any further.

Riders battled the heat all day, with temperatures in the high 30‰Ûªs and traversed close to 300km's in one day.

Daniel Milner was Australia‰Ûªs best rider on the day, sitting 7th outright. The other three Josh Green, Matthew Phillips and Daniel 'Chucky' Sanders sitting in the 20‰Ûªs outright. Overall it has been a positive start to the ISDE campaign for the Australians, despite several crashes. Three World Trophy teams saw one of their riders‰Ûª fail to reach the finish of day one ‰ÛÒ USA, Chile and Japan.

Tayla Jones was very quick and was the leading rider for the Australians, second fastest overall. Jess Gardiner had an up and down day throughout the tests, but battled on at her second home, where she was very well received by the locals and was able to finish a respectable third in the Womens. Despite a few offs Jemma Wilson resides in seventh. Australia will look to make inroads into Spain‰Ûªs lead tomorrow to fight for a fifth title in a row.

It was a very difficult day for the Juniors World Trophy Team, despite a standout performance from Lyndon Snodgrass. Unfortunately Wil Ruprecht and Michael Driscoll lost their way out on a trial and ended up being very far behind and will now be excluded from the event. Lyndon Snodgrass will continue to race, although it will just be for outright and class honuors.

‰ÛÏStarted off rough and had an off in the first test. Second test I had a big cartwheel, it‰Ûªs a lot different to what we ride back home. After those early mishaps, I got a flow going and it started to click for me. Team is going well and we are sitting third. I‰Ûªm really confident we can challenge for the top position tomorrow.‰Û
