The American Motorcyclist Association is pleased to announce the U.S. riders who will contest the 87th International Six Days Enduro. Comprising of Russell Bobbitt (KTM), Mike Brown (KTM), Kurt Caselli (KTM), Robert Garrison (Kawasaki), Charlie Mullins (KTM) and Taylor Robert (Kawasaki) the USA World Trophy Team will face the best off-road racers from other countries in Saxony, Germany, September 24-29.
The ISDE effort this year is managed by Antti Kallonen.
"I'm very excited about this year's Trophy Team," said Kallonen, whose own professional racing career included competition in the FIM Motocross World Championship. "We were able to assemble a very fast team. We have a few new riders on the team and they have proved their speed in our national series. And with manufacturers on board, all the riders have full support behind them, so they can focus only on racing. This year's Six Days will have some of the stiffest competition we have seen in years, but with our team, we have good chance to be on top."

The U.S. Junior Trophy Team will include Steward Baylor (KTM), Travis Coy (KTM), Andrew DeLong (Husqvarna) and Thad Duvall (Honda).
"Our Junior Trophy Team is made from pure speed," Kallonen said. "The riders selected are among the top riders in the country, and even though they are new to the Six Days, I expect them to do well and be on top. We have a good support program for our Junior Team riders to guide them so, again, the riders can focus on racing."
The U.S. Women's Cup Team will include Rachel Gutish (KTM), Mandi Mastin (KTM) and Sarah Whitmore (KTM).
