Team Australian has taken charge of the 2018 FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Chile after surging ahead in the World Trophy category, comfortably defeating the USA and Italy on day two.

Unfortunately, the squad saw Lyndon Snodgrass (KTM Enduro Racing Team) drop out of the competition, meaning Australia can no longer afford another mistake for the remainder of the event with all rider scores counting.

In the Junior World Trophy class there was no stopping Italy as they powered their way to another day win. Setting the pace in this year’s race, the team edged out USA and France, with Australian winding up in fourth.

Feeling at home in the dry and dusty conditions, Team Australia were able to build on their lead in the Women’s World Trophy competition. The trio of Tayla Jones (Husqvarna), Jessica Gardiner (Yamaha) and Mackenzie Tricker (KTM) now enjoy a three-minute advantage over the USA and Spain.

In the individual classification, Taylor Robert (KTM Factory Racing) from the USA maintains his overall lead by three seconds from Daniel Milner (KTM Enduro Racing Team), who won day two. Milner holds a 17-second advantage over Australian teammate Daniel Sanders (Husqvarna Enduro Racing) in the E3 category, as Robert and Davide Guarneri (Honda) lead the E2 and E1 class respectively.

Aussie contender Fraser Higlett (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team) is ranked sixth in the E1 category after the opening two days, while Josh Strang (Husqvarna) holds down seventh in the E2 overall standings. Behind fellow Australians Milner and Sanders in E3 are Thomas Mason (KTM) and Andrew Wilksch in 11th and 13th respectively. Jones controls the individual Women’s standings followed by compatriots Tricker and Gardiner in fifth and sixth.
