ISDE Day Five ‰ÛÒ Spain and Italy struggle while USA head towards World Trophy victory
Day five of the 91st running of the FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Navarra, Spain served up yet more drama as Italy‰Ûªs hopes of challenging the USA for the World Trophy team win ended no sooner than the day had begun.

Crashing heavily in the opening special test Manuel Monni ‰ÛÒ TM was forced to retire from the event with a broken right hand. Team USA now sit close to four minutes clear of second placed Great Britain. In the Junior World Trophy competition everything is still to play for as at the end of the penultimate day just twenty-six seconds separates class leaders Sweden from the USA.

Before the fifth day had even started there was a significant change in the results as Spain‰Ûªs Ivan Cervantes ‰ÛÒ KTM was unable to take to the start following an injury he picked up on day four, dropping the host nation from fourth to fifteenth in the World Trophy competition.

Daniel Sanders once again stared for Australia with the second overall fastest time.
Soon after it was Italy who lost a rider, meaning the USA found themselves in the driving seat. Not needing to take any unnecessary risks the USA quartet ‰ÛÒ who ended day four less than one and a half minutes ahead ‰ÛÒ nevertheless claimed the day win ahead of Great Britain, who claimed their best result of the event to date.

The Czech Republic posted the third fastest World Trophy team result on day five with Sweden fourth. The USA, Great Britain and the Czech Republic hold first through third in the overall World Trophy standings respectively, with the USA sitting almost four minutes ahead.

Just three seconds separated Sweden from the USA at the top of the day‰Ûªs Junior World Trophy team results as the battle for the overall class win continued. Overcoming a disappointing, crash filled day four, Sweden‰Ûªs Albin Elowson ‰ÛÒ Husqvarna, Mikael Persson ‰ÛÒ Yamaha and Jesper Borjesson ‰ÛÒ Husqvarna outpaced the USA by the narrowest of margins to enter the final day of competition just under thirty seconds ahead. Finland placed third on day five with Italy holding third overall.

Maria Franke ‰ÛÒ KTM posted the day‰Ûªs fastest outright time in the Women‰Ûªs class with Germany placing third in the Women‰Ûªs World Trophy classification. Australia‰Ûªs Jessica Gardiner ‰ÛÒ Yamaha, Tayla Jones ‰ÛÒ Yamaha and Jemma Wilson ‰ÛÒ Yamaha posted the fastest team result, moving to just over three and a half minutes ahead of Spain in the overall Women‰Ûªs World Trophy results.

The fastest outright rider on day five was Spain‰Ûªs Junior World Trophy team rider Josep Garcia ‰ÛÒ Husqvarna who finished eighteen seconds ahead of Australia‰Ûªs Daniel Sanders ‰ÛÒ KTM with Giacomo Redondi ‰ÛÒ Honda, Taylor Robert ‰ÛÒ KTM and Luis Correia ‰ÛÒ Beta taking second to fifth respectively. With just the final motocross races to go Robert still sits at the top of the overall individual results with Sanders just twelve seconds behind after more than three hours of special test racing completed. Garcia sits third overall with Giacomo Redondi ‰ÛÒ Honda fourth.

‰ÛÏThis overall day win is for my friend Ivan Cervantes,‰Û
