With an advantage of 3m34.42s, Australia’s bLU cRU Women’s team are on-track to claim a record fourth International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) title after leading the category for the fifth consecutive day in Navarra, Spain.

Tayla Jones and Jemma Wilson sit third and fourth in the individual standings, while Jessica Gardener has maintained her position in 17th, with a mechanical on day one denying her of being further up the order.

Team USA have continued their charge in the World Trophy class, and following difficulties from Italy and Spain, they’re almost certain to take the title barring any issues on the final day.

With Australia’s riders fighting for individual results in the category, it was Daniel Sanders who maintained his impressive form on day five, currently sitting 12.20s behind outright leader Taylor Robert. The KTM-mounted rider also leads the E3 class with a comfortable advantage.

Fellow Australian Lachlan Stanford sits 28th outright and 11th in the E1 overall standings, 50.10s shy of the top 10.

The Junior World Trophy category has continued to be led by Sweden, however Team USA are only 26.92s behind, leaving no room for error on the final day. Italy rounded out the top three, with Australia holding a slim advantage over Mexico in sixth.

Australian representative Tom McCormack has a firm grip on 18th in the E2 standings, while teammate Jack Simpson sits 18th in the E1 class, and Nic Tomlinson 16th in E3.
