Great Britain will not field a Trophy team in this year’s International Six Days Enduro in Chile next November.
Making the announcement today, March 14th, the Auto Cycle Union (ACU) officially withdrew Great Britain from the World and Junior World Trophy categories.
The ACU cited numerous reasons for the decision including logistics and lack of names coming forward to field the teams.
The ACU will continue to support any British Club team riders entered in this year’s race.
Official statement issued by ISDE:
No ACU Trophy Teams to Compete at the 2018 ISDE in Chile
At the ACU Trials and Enduro Committee meeting held on 12th March it was agreed that due to a number of factors, in particular the lack of names coming forward from potential Trophy Squad riders, and the difficulties with logistics co-ordination, the Committee would not be supporting the entries of Trophy teams at the event in Chile this year.
Any Club teams who have committed to enter will be supported in the normal way with admin via the ACU office.
The ISDE takes place in Viña del Mar, Chile from November 12-17.
Pre-entry registration is open until March 30th.
