Junior World Trophy team bolsters advantage in Portugal.
Team Australia remains second in the World Trophy standings as Team USA continues to lead on day four of the 2019 FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Portugal, while the Australian Junior World Trophy and Women’s World Trophy squads are ranked first and eighth respectively.
The American World Trophy squad has taken its advantage to 1m27s over Australia, who remain in the hunt for successive title with two days to go. Team Italy holds down third over Spain and Finland.
In the Junior World Trophy division, Team Australia boosted its lead to a staggering 8m52s ahead of Team USA, as Italy, Spain and Portugal complete the top five.
Team USA holds a comfortable gap over Germany and Great Britain in the Women’s World Trophy, with Spain and Sweden in positions four and five. It was heartbreak for Team Australia following the exit of both Mackenzie Tricker (KTM) on day three followed by Tayla Jones (Husqvarna), removing any chance of defending the Women’s crown.
Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team’s Daniel Sanders still leads the individual outright results ahead over Spaniard Josep Garcia (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) and American Taylor Robert (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing).
Australians Lyndon Snodgrass (KTM Enduro Racing Team), Luke Styke (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing) and Fraser Higlett (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team) now sit in positions nine, 10 and 11, while compatriots Josh Green (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing), Michael Driscoll (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing) and Matt Phillips (KTM) are ranked 15th, 19th, and 32nd.
Following the DNFs of Tricker and Jones, Jessica Gardiner (Yamaha) sits fourth in the Women’s outright standings.
Sanders still controls the E3 division, with Higlett, Green, Driscoll and Phillips taking up spots four, five, eight and 15 in the E2 category. In E1, Snodgrass and Styke are fourth and fifth respectively.
