Results feed: ISDE 2019 Day 1 – Australia take charge

Results feed from day one at the International Six Days Enduro 2019 in Portimao, Portugal – Daniel Sanders and Team Australia set the pace.

 

Day one at the 2019 International Six Days Enduro in Portugal in a nutshell:

  • The Australian World Trophy team pick up where they left of 12 months ago with an opening day lead, just 19s ahead of Team USA.
  • Daniel Sanders set the pace individually finishing over 30 seconds clear of Josep Garcia in second.
  • Ryan Sipes was arguably a surprise top placed Team USA rider in third overall less than half a second ahead of Taylor Robert with Kailub Russell fourth building a strong team result.
  • A close battle in the Juniors individually saw many of the top contenders close on times with Theo Espinasse setting a fastest overall time on test three in the morning.
  • Fraser Higlett took the overall Junior result though to help Australia take the early lead in the Junior Trophy. Higlett and Espinasse were P7 and P8 overall respectively.
  • Test three proved to be Brad Freeman’s down fall. Sadly for the EnduroGP World Champion a relatively simple crash resulted in a broken wrist putting him out of the ISDE World Trophy for Team GB.
  • Brandy Richards and Maria Franke set the pace in the Women’s Trophy class with Richards ending the day 15s clear in front. Tayla Jones meanwhile took a slower start 1m34s behind in third. 
  • Overall in the Women's Trophy Franke leads the German team to a solid start to place five seconds ahead of USA with defending champions, Australia third just over one minute down.
