Australian Seniors World Trophy Team Reflect on 2017 ISDE Podium
After a strong performance on the final two gruelling days of the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE), Australia have come in second place behind the host nation, France.

It was a dominant display by the French Team throughout the week and were simply unstoppable on their home turf. Australia were the World Trophy team winners on the sixth and final day of the 92nd running of the ISDE. Finishing with a collective time of forty-three minutes and twenty-seven seconds, Australia placed thirty-two seconds ahead of third placer, Finland.

Team Australia were gallant in defeat, the French simply too strong and fast on their home soil. With the lead that the French had accumulated in the opening days, it was always going to be a tough ask to reel in the significant lead. Team Australia can be very proud to place second in a highly completive world event. All of the Senior riders were able to finish inside the top 20 and make up ground in the Final Moto.

Josh Green had a phenomenal start and managed a position as high as third, although he would drop back one spot to fourth when Garcia managed to overtake him on the first lap. After battling hard, Green was able to hold fourth spot with amazing consistency. The fourth place had Green finish seventh in the E1 class. Green would finish overall 18th in the standings.

‰ÛÏToday went really well for the Final Moto and I got a very good start. I managed to jump up into fourth which allowed me to move up spots in the outright standings. I‰Ûªm very happy to see that all the Senior Australian riders finished in the top 20 outright. Can‰Ûªt wait for next year!‰Û

Daniel Milner
Daniel Milner got off to a respectable start sitting in 8th, although slowly pegged his way back and was able to make some great passes and take 6th spot. He has been superb all week, leading from the front continuing his form from this year's Australian Off-Road Championship. He would finish fourth outright and also 2nd in E2 Class by one minute and 32 seconds from the winner.

‰ÛÏIt went very well for the Australian's today. We brought home the quickest Motocross times so it was an awesome day for us. Big thanks to KTM Australia for hooking me up with a bike over here. Next year we hope to get a step higher but we had a strong team and put in a lot of hard work. Big thanks to the team for assisting us wherever they could.‰Û

Matthew Phillips
Daniel Sanders would sit just outside the top 10. Sanders would be able to work his way back into the front and got seventh, followed closely by junior team mate Snodgrass, who secured eighth position.

‰ÛÏThe ISDE is wrapped up and it‰Ûªs great to finish." Sanders reflected. "It was a good result considering the injury I sustained. I didn‰Ûªt want to let the team down so I‰Ûªm happy that the team got second.

"We had a bad start in the Final Moto, I caught up with Phillips later on in the race and he let me by to keep an eye on me. We just wanted to make sure that we didn‰Ûªt lose any time on the Fins. The individual result wasn‰Ûªt the one we wanted but with the year I‰Ûªve had, its good to finish in the top 20 and third in the E3 class.

"I would also like to thank Motorcycling Australia for getting us over here again and KTM.‰Û

Despite Australian Junior World Trophy Team members, Wil Ruprecht and Michael Driscoll not racing after Day One, they have made a significant contribution behind the scenes to help get the job done. MA would like to thank them for their assistance to the team.

‰ÛÏJust a big thanks to everyone that‰Ûªs helped me get here over to France to help me race the ISDE, I couldn‰Ûªt have done it without their assistance." Sole Junior Throphy team finisher Snodgrass said. "It was a great feeling to cross the finish line and I appreciate everyone‰Ûªs support to get me here today.‰Û
