Australia’s Women’s team remain in control of the category on day three of the 2016 International Six Days Enduro in Navarro, Spain, while Team USA have extended their lead in the World Trophy class.

Taylor Robert continues to take charge for the American squad, playing a pivotal role in extending their World Trophy advantage to 1m35.88s. Italy and Spain have maintained their positions in second and third respectively.

Minus two riders, Australia’s World Trophy team is out of contention for the ISDE title as they receive two, three-hour penalties each day for Josh Strang and Daniel Milner’s unfortunate early exit from the event. They’re situated in 22nd position, however with penalties being imposed daily, it’s unlikely they’ll improve on that result.

With only individual results on the line, recently crowned AORC champion Daniel Sanders has moved to second in the overall standings, while compatriot Lachlan Stanford slipped back to 28th position.

Sweden have continued to lead the Junior World Trophy category following the completion of day three, they’re currently followed by the USA and Italy. Australia’s Tom McCormack (50th), Jack Simpson (53rd) and Nic Tomlinson (78th) improved on their overall result, moving into ninth.

Australia’s Women’s team has been a dominant force throughout the week, leading the category for the third consecutive day. They hold a 2m23.34s advantage over Spain, while Germany sits a 13m35.54s behind in third.

Tayla Jones (second) and Jemma Wilson (fourth) maintain their positions within the top five, while Jessica Gardener is positioned 18th after a mechanical malfunction ruled her out of the opening day.
