Australia Rule The World On Day Two At 2015 ISDE


The second day of the 2016 FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Kosice, Slovakia saw this historic team competition come alive with Australia fighting back in style to claim a commanding victory across all three world trophy classes.

Now holding the overall lead in the FIM World Trophy, FIM Junior World Trophy and also the FIM Women‰Ûªs World Trophy team categories, Australia are proving themselves as the nation to beat in this year‰Ûªs ISDE battle.

If early leaders USA thought they were going to runaway with proceedings in the latest edition of the ISDE, Australia quickly dampened their spirits with a stunning performance on day two.

Hitting hard, they rapidly reduced USA‰Ûªs seventy-four second advantage before taking control of the FIM World Trophy team classification. Ending day two in front, Australia now hold an eight-second gap over the USA who will look to rebound and recover the time lost on day three.

Behind the two leading nations, France remain stationed in third. Although unable to gain any ground on USA or Australia, the defending ISDE champions have pulled clear of Spain in fourth. Sitting just over one-minute behind, Italy complete the top five in the World Trophy team competition.

Boosted by the performance of new Enduro 3 class leader Daniel Sanders ‰ÛÒ KTM, Australia secured their second consecutive day win in the FIM Junior World Trophy team class to further consolidate their lead. Slipping to over six minutes behind, Sweden still maintain their runner-up position in the class. The fight for third overall has tightened up between France and USA with the French holding a slender twenty-five second advantage over their American rivals in fourth placed. Italy round out the top five with Great Britain just seven seconds behind in sixth.

In the FIM Women‰Ûªs World Trophy team competition there was no change at the head of the field. Australia‰Ûªs Tayla Jones once again dominated the classification and together with her teammates Jessica Gardiner and Jemma Wilson , Australia have now opened up a fifteen-minute lead over France and Sweden.

In the individual classes, securing his second consecutive day win, USA‰Ûªs Kailub Russell extends his Enduro 1 class lead to almost thirty-seven seconds. Great Britain‰Ûªs Jamie McCanney holds onto second position while France‰Ûªs Marc Bourgeois ‰ÛÒ Yamaha narrowly maintains third from Australia‰Ûªs Josh Green.

In the Enduro 2 category Australia‰Ûªs Daniel Milner Yamaha claimed his first day win in this year‰Ûªs ISDE. Sitting second in class, he has now closed the gap to leader USA‰Ûªs Ryan Sipes.

Matt Phillips KTM is third overall at the end of day two, while Tye Simmonds sits inside the top ten in 9th position and Beau Ralston three spots further back in 12th. Glenn Kearney sits in 21st and Broc Grabham in 31st rounds out the Australian riders in the E2 class.

Sanders is the new leader of the Enduro 3 class with victory on day two, while countryman Lachlan Stanford drops to second position, with Tom Sanders in 18th at the end of day two.

Australia's Women once again topped the time sheets for the day, with Tayla Jones leading the way ahead of Jessica Gardiner and Jemma Wilson.

Day three of the Slovakian ISDE will see competitors tackle the rough and bumpy tracks of days one and two in the opposite direction to ensure another physical and demanding day of racing in the hills around Kosice.
