The 2016 International Six Days Enduro will see a major shakeup in the Trophy team structure as it downsizes both the World Trophy and Junior World Trophy teams.
Undergoing a major overhaul, the ISDE World Trophy team has been reduced from six to four riders.
It marks the first time in 60 years since the class has been restructured. It was previously five riders but was increased for the 1956 ISDT - as it was known then - to six.
The Junior World Trophy team will also be reduced from four to three riders.
The Women’s World Trophy team will remain unchanged at three riders.
FIM Jury will now be replaced by FIM Race Direction – This will comprise of the Clerk of the Course, the Race Director and the Course Inspector.
In addition there will now be a Steward’s Panel made up of 2 FIM Stewards and 1 Steward from the National Federation. A review of the penalties and clarification of the protest and appeal procedure has been implemented.
Further to the initial announcement late last year, the newly launched FIM Vintage Trophy (for motorcycles over 30 years old) will celebrate its first edition during the 2016 ISDE. Supplementary regulation and registration will be available from March.
Preliminary entries for the 2016 ISDE at the Circuito Navarra, Spain - October 11-16 - are already open but are set to close on Monday 29 February. Entries are capped at 753 riders.
