Eighteen riders from across Canada have signed up for the next International Six Days of Enduro. They will be riding for Team Canada at this prestigious event—which takes place November 3 to 8, 2014, in San Juan, Argentina.
The ISDE is the oldest motorcycle event on the FIM calendar. It was first held in 1913 in Carlisle, England. Since then it has been held in more than 45 countries around the globe. The ISDE is sometimes referred to as the Olympics of Motorcycling.
Last year at the ISDE, Team Canada put on one of the best showings in years, with 11 out of 13 riders coming home as medallists. Barons, Alberta, native Shelby Turner even made history at the event by winning our country’s first gold medal for the Women’s Trophy Team.
They’re hoping for another stellar performance this year.
