It’s been revealed victors of the 2018 Junior World Trophy, Team Italy, will host the FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in 2020 through the Moto Club Alfieri.

The dates are still being determined, but the event is set to take place between the end of August and the beginning of September, over the Piedmont and Lombardy regions.

Moto Club Alfieri will organise the event in collaboration with other FMI clubs, and they are already working to prepare a memorable ISDE. The Six Days will be making its return to Italy – after the 2013 edition in Sardinia – in a territory with a strong enduro tradition.

FIM president Jorge Viegas expressed commented: “Italy has a lot of experience in the organisation of the FIM ISDE, as the country will be hosting the competition for the ninth time since its origin in 1913. Italy’s experience and affection for enduro is a guarantee of success for the 94th edition.”

The 2019 instalment of the ISDE is scheduled for 11-16 November in Portimao, Portugal. In 2018, Team Australia dominated the ISDE, taking out top honours in the World Trophy and Women’s World Trophy categories.
