The American Motorcyclist Association has announced the 2017 U.S. ISDE Club Teams for the International Six Days Enduro, scheduled for Aug. 28 through Sept. 2 in Brive, France.

These 21 competitors will join the U.S. World Trophy, Junior Trophy and Women’s Trophy teams in the race for gold medals.
2017 U.S. ISDE Club Team Racers Announced“These riders have worked hard, qualifying through the new ISDE Qualifier series and have earned a spot to represent the United States in the largest and most prestigious enduro event in the world,” said AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Erek Kudla.
“After winning the World Trophy at the 91st running of the ISDE, it is our goal to defend our championship at the 92nd running, while finishing on the podium at every opportunity, and I think that, with the level of riders that have qualified, we have a very good chance at doing it.”
