FIM International Six Days of Enduro & FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy postponed until 2021

Following in-depth discussions between the FIM, FMI and the local organising committee of the 2020 FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) and the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy (EVT) in relation to the ongoing Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and the associated restrictions, it has been decided to postpone the events until the same period in 2021.

Whilst the ISDE was not due to take place until late August early September of this year – between Lombardy and Piedmont, Italy – there are many influencing factors that made it necessary to take a decision sooner rather than later regarding the 95th edition of what remains the oldest event in the FIM international calendar.

The annual off-road event attracts several hundred competitors from more than thirty countries around the World each year, all of whom which have to commit to extensive travel and logistic plans several months in advance of the ISDE.

Moreover, the ISDE demands many months of forward planning and work to prepare many hundred of kilometres of course, all of which rely on the permission of the various local authorities and stakeholders.

With this in mind the FIM, FMI and the local organising committee decided that in the best interest of all parties, and to ensure that the ISDE continues to hold it place as one of the most important events in the off-road calendar that all early decision to postpone the event was the right and proper action.

The 95th edition of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro will now take place from 30th August to 4th September 2021 with the 5th edition of the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy from 2nd to 4th September, between Lombardy and Piedmont in Italy.

Please note all 2020 pre-entry fees will be refunded in due course. .. lees meer ..

2019 ISDE Portugal: en dan nog dit … over Belgen en kansen!

Onze zuiderburen deden het uitstekend. Hun World Trophy Team met daarin de bij ons goed bekende Mathias van Hoof werd 10e. Op dag 4 raakten zij Jerome Martiny kwijt met een beenblessure. Dat drukte het resultaat iets. Snelste Nederlandse (Trophy) rijder Lucas Dolfing was sneller dan Mathias. Op basis van zijn uitslag zou een NL Trophy Team met nog drie even snelle mannen voor België en zelfs Portugal op plaats 9 zijn geëindigd.

Indrukwekkend was de prestatie van het Belgische Junior Trophy Team dat een sterke 5e plaats wist binnen te halen. Hiervoor tellen elke dag alle drie de rijders. Het team bestond uit WK topper Antoine Magain, de snelle Erik Willems en jeugd rijder Mika Vanderheyden. Mika had het best zwaar .. lees meer ..

FIM-ISDE: Day Six – United States win 2019 FIM ISDE

FIM World Trophy - USA © Dario AgratiThe United States have claimed FIM World Trophy victory at the ninety-fourth edition of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) in Portimao, Portugal. In what is now their second win in the event, the United States led home RecoveR8 Team Australia in second with Italy – hosts for the 2020 FIM ISDE – securing third.

The FIM Junior World Trophy category marked a win for RecoveR8 Team Australia over the United States with Spain joining them on the podium in third. There was further reason for the United States to celebrate in this year’s FIM ISDE as their women’s team also rode to victory in the FIM Women’s World Trophy category. .. lees meer ..

2019 ISDE Portugal: wijsheid achteraf…
Over een klein zesje voor de organisatie en onze gemiste kansen.
De toch ervaren organisator liet veel steken vallen. Geen routepijlen voor publiek en volgers naar de proeven, de plattegronden kwamen pas op zaterdag voor de wedstrijd en het programmaboekje op dag3! Geen controle door marshalls voor de eerste rijder uit en dat gaf al problemen op woensdag morgen. En geen plan B! Files voor een helling in de route gevolgd door ad-hoc beslissingen die onhandig en oneerlijk waren. Dat kostte bijna de wedstrijddag voor de clubrijders op woensdag en de snelsste 70 in de scratch reden wel 1 1/2 ronde; de rest werd na één ronde en dan nog precies voor een proef uit de wedstrijd gehaald. Jammer op dit niveau.
En dan de gemiste kansen: achteraf is makkelijk maar soms moet je durven! Een NL Junior team met Lars Griekspoor, Thijs Bulten en Tommie Jochems zou 6e zijn geworden, op 5 minuten achter België! Dit verrast mij ook en het betekent dat de KNMV selectie-criteria hoognodig geëvalueerd moeten worden. Ik ben nog steeds een groot voorstander van objectieve criteria maar op dit moment is de voorspellende waarde ruim onvoldoende.
