Finland Wins 2006 ISDE, USA wins Junior Trophy Team
The 81st International Six Days Enduro wrapped up near Taupo, New
Zealand today, with the Finnish team coming out on top. Host New
Zealand finished seventh.
As expected, there was little any of the 31 nations competing could do
to throttle back the flying Finns from taking the Trophy Team win. The
theme of the event transformed on the sixth and final day from a battle
of endurance in the mud and slush to a test of high speed riding on the
volcanic sand and ash of the local motocross track.
In the junior Trophy Team (for riders under age 23) standings, the
United States team won, ahead of France and Australia, with New Zealand
maintaining their grip on 10th overall position.
Next year’s ISDE will be held in Chile.
