Strong Pre-Entry list for the 92nd edition of the FIM ISDE

Posted:

With still five months to go before the 2017 FIM International Six Days of Enduro (FIM ISDE) in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France from 28 August to 2 September, the pre-entry list for this historic event is already incredibly strong with almost seven hundred riders signed up.

Defending FIM World Trophy class title holders Unites States of America headline this list and will return to Europe to attempt to win this most prestigious prize for only the second time in the long history of an event that is the most venerable of the FIM‰Ûªs competitions. A total of thirty-one riders from the USA will descend on the French town of Brive-la-Gaillarde later this year.

A contingent of sixteen Swedish riders will also be present including three members of their FIM Junior World Trophy class who will again look to secure this hotly fought for title. With thirteen competitors listed, Australia will also be well represented as they have teams entered in all three main classes including the FIM Women‰Ûªs World Trophy class, which they will look to retain for yet another year.

There are currently more than seven hundred riders on the pre-entry list but only 650 will be selected at the end of June to take part in the event. They will represent thirty-two different nations from as far afield as South America and Asia and with a healthy showing from all the European countries that have had a long association with this event. These include Italy, Great Britain, Germany, The Netherlands and of course the host nation France, that boasts almost two hundred riders who will proudly fly the famous three coloured flag. Typically, the Scandinavian countries are well represented by Sweden, Finland and Norway.

Alongside the main event, the second edition of the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy also has an equally impressive tally of riders on its pre-entry list and over ninety competitors out of a possible 150 have already confirmed their participation. After the highly successful and widely applauded inaugural edition held in Spain last year, this event for motorcycles of yesteryear will again take place over the last three days of the ISDE and will include an acceleration test, an enduro and a cross test to determine the eventual winners.

All the competitors of the 2017 ISDE will be aware of the area‰Ûªs sporting reputation. The region of Correze is well known to Enduro, having hosted the FIM Enduro World Championship in Servi̬res-le-ChÌ¢teau (1994) and in Uzerche (2008), plus the ISDE in 2001, which was declared a success by all who took part in it. The dynamic town of Brive-la-Gaillarde itself has played host to many sporting events and will provide the ideal set-up for the 2017 FIM ISDE.
