The 2011 Six Days International Enduro wrapped up Saturday in Finland, with the home team taking the world trophy. As for the Junior and Women’s ISDE trophies, France took top honors in both.

Sweden claimed an eventual fourth-place ISDE result with The Netherlands fifth and Germany – the host nation of the 2012 ISDE in sixth.

In the Junior ISDE trophy, France won by over 13 minutes ahead of Sweden, with Great Britain in third.

With a massive one-hour and twelve-minute winning margin France secured a deserved victory in the Women’s Cup competition, helped by a final day winning performance from team rider Ludivine Puy (Gas Gas). France took the win over Finland and Australia.
