Spain confirm dates and details of 91st edition of ISDE
Using the opportunity of the current edition of the FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) taking place in Kosice, Slovakia the 2016 joint promoters Alkamel Systems and BaSSella confirmed details of next year’s ISDE to be held at the Circuito Navarra, Spain during their recent presentation to media and teams.
Unusually the 91st edition of the ISDE will take place Tuesday to Sunday and not Monday to Saturday as is normally the case with the competition starting on 11 October and ending 16 October 2016. The opening parade will follow a famous route through the town of Los Arcos before the following six days of action will use the terrain around the Circuito Navarra before closing with the final motocross test taking place beside the permanent tarmac track.
The riders, teams and fans will not only be able to enjoy the fantastic facilities provided by this established motorsports venue that was first opened in 2010, but they will also be able to appreciate the rich culture of the region, the warm climate and the many local attractions that the area can offer.
Next year’s event will include the first ever FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy*, which will take place during the last two days of the 2016 ISDE. This will consist of the following programme – Saturday – course, test and acceleration test and Sunday – cross final. International vintage riders from all over the World will be invited to join this first edition, so that the historical motorcycles from over thirty years ago will ride again as part of this prestigious event.
Next year’s joint promoters Alkamel Systems and BaSSella have a great pedigree in motorcycle sport with members of their team having previously raced in the ISDE, the Dakar Rally, organised many Spanish national enduro and motocross events plus the 1985 ISDE, and 2014 Enduro Grand Prix of Spain. They are also responsible for organising the most popular enduro race in Spain, this is known as ‘The Bassella Race 1’, which welcomes over one thousand riders each year.
