After an enormously successful 2018 in Chile, Motorcycling Australia (MA) has announced the official Team Australia heading to the 2019 FIM International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) in Portimao, Portugal from 11-16 November.
With a highly prestigious and undeniably successful history in the annual ISDE, Team Australia will arrive in Portugal to defend two highly coveted trophies and a hunger to retain their top spot.
Over six days on three different routes, traversing 1,500 kilometres and tackling 10 demanding special tests, Team Australia will go up against more than 30 nations from five continents. Riding on the back of an undeniably successful 2018 in Chile where Team Australia took home the Outright World Champion, World Trophy and Women‰Ûªs World Trophy, the three teams will call upon a wealth of experience and an invaluable support team as they push both mind and body to the ultimate test.
2018 ISDE Outright Champion, Daniel Milner (KTM Enduro Racing Team), returns again for 2019 riding a currently perfect Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) E2 season. Joining Milner for the second year in a row is speed demon and larrikin, Daniel Sanders (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team), whose ferocity in the 2019 AORC season as well as appearances in the Pirelli MX Nationals shows no chance of slowing down.
Long-time Australian ISDE competitor, Joshua Green (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube), returns to Team Australia for 2019 atop his Yamaha, bringing a World Trophy win from 2015 and immense AORC experience to the table.
Rounding out the 2019 Australian World Trophy Team is Green‰Ûªs Active8 Yamaha Yamalube teammate Luke Styke. Styke has become the first Australian to win an Australian Motocross, Supercross and AORC title, and will be an extremely valuable asset to the World Trophy Team as they pursue a campaign to protect their winning streak.
