The International Six-Day Enduro (ISDE), the pinnacle of offroad motorcycle racing, is on the horizon, and Jessica Gardiner is spearheading a mission to ensure Australia’s women riders shine.
The ISDE, hailed as the ‘Olympics’ of motorcycling, brings together elite riders representing their countries in a high-stakes battle.
Every year, three Australian women riders take on the global competition, with their combined performance determining the team’s standing. With an impressive six world ISDE titles and numerous podium finishes, the Aussie women are primed for the 2023 event in Argentina this November.
But there’s a financial roadblock this time. Riders Jessica Gardiner, Tayla Jones, and Danielle McDonald are on a mission to secure funding, enabling them to proudly showcase their nation’s prowess.
Backing from Australia can make a world of difference. The goal might seem steep at nearly $60,000, but even a modest contribution can help. If 600 people give $100 or 1200 contribute $50, victory is within reach.
The bulk of the budget is dedicated to flights for a team of at least ten, including riders, navigating the race’s logistical maze. This accounts for $30,000, while the remainder covers accommodation, support, meetings, physio, insurance, equipment, logistics, and more.
Those looking to make a bigger impact can explore Major or Official partner roles for the 2023 Women’s ISDE Team. Reach out to Jessica Gardiner, the Women’s Team Coordinator, to discuss. https://jessgardiner.com.au/contact/
The team extends heartfelt thanks to Australia and global supporters. The riders, Jess, Tay, and Danielle, are set to conquer the 2023 ISDE.
