2015 ISDE USA Women’s World Trophy Team Lineup
The American Motorcyclist Association has announced the USA Women’s World Trophy Team and six AMA club teams that will compete in the 2015 International Six Days Enduro, which is set for Sept. 7-12, 2015, in Kosice, Slovakia.
The AMA says the USA Women’s World Trophy Team consists of 21 riders, including America’s top female racers Rachel Gutish, Mandi Mastin and Jamie Wells.
During the 2015 ISDE, these women motorcyclists will compete alongside the men USA World Trophy Team, which includes Mike Brown, Thad Duvall, Taylor Robert, Kailub Russell, Ryan Sipes and Gary Sutherlin, as well as the U.S. Junior Trophy Team of Grant Baylor, Steward Baylor, Justin Jones and Layne Michael.
“We are fortunate to be able to send not only three trophy teams, but also six club teams to represent the U.S. in off-road international competition,” said Chuck Weir, AMA off-road racing manager. “These riders are among the top in the nation and display great athleticism while competing against countries from around the world.”
“I love going to the different countries, riding different terrain and seeing different atmospheres,” said Mastin, selected for the 2015 ISDE USA Women’s World Trophy Team for the ninth consecutive year. “Representing the U.S. is also a big honor. I’m looking forward to getting back to a real European Six Days. I actually think it is going to be kind of like Ohio, terrain-wise.”
