Daniel Sanders says capturing outright victory at the 2019 FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Portugal has ticked off the biggest goal in his career.

The Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team rider, who assisted Team Australia to second in the World Trophy standings, dominated the week-long event, remaining on top of the outright and E3 classification for the full six days.

“[I’m] so over the moon, this is the biggest goal I’ve wanted to tick off in my career,” Sanders commented. “All the best riders in the world were there and I came out on top! So many people to thank who have helped made this happen.

“It has been a hectic week here at the ISDE and we gave it our all as a team. Although we didn’t reclaim the World Trophy, we can be proud of second place and there’s always next year to come out swinging. I am so happy to claim the individual outright ISDE championship, it’s been a big year for me and I’m now looking forward to some off-season downtime before a big 2020.”

It’s been an incredible year for Sanders, the popular Victorian claiming the E3 and unofficial outright titles in the Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), and now being crowned ISDE outright champion.
