It might seem an eternity away to all fans but, actually, it’s already time to prepare for the first of the two races which will decide the Champion in most of the categories: Uhlírské Janovice.
There will be many face-offs this September.
In Enduro 1 Brad FREEMAN (GB – Beta Boano) will have to fend off his pursuers Thomas OLDRATI (I – Honda RedMoto) and Matteo CAVALLO (I – Sherco) who will want to make the most of any mistake he might make. In Enduro 2 four riders still stand a chance: Alex SALVINI (I – Honda RedMoto) is ready to defend himself against Loïc LARRIEU (F – TM), Christophe CHARLIER (F – Honda RedMoto) and Benjamin HERRERA (CL – Beta) no matter what. Steve HOLCOMBE (GB – Beta) will not be able to predict how best to approach the race and defeat Daniel MCCANNEY (GB – TM) and Antony GESLIN (F – Beta) who are chasing him in the general rankings of Enduro3.
Brad FREEMAN is in the lead also in EnduroGP where he will have to compete with HOLCOMBE, who is second and only 4 points behind, while Daniel MCCANNEY is distanced by 23 points.

Even with over four months to go before the 94th edition of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) is set to take place in Portimao, Portugal from 11 to 16 November 2019, the pre-entry list is incredibly strong with over seven hundred and fifty riders confirmed already.
A total of twenty-six countries have registered teams in the three main trophy classes – those being World Trophy, Junior Trophy and Women’s World Trophy. Australia top the list both alphabetically and in terms of defending titles, as they head to Portugal later this year as the current holders of both the World Trophy and Women’s World Trophy prizes. Italy took home the Junior Trophy last year and will look to retain this honour when they arrive in Portimao in just over four-months’ time.

Since the beginning of the year, the FIM has been openly talking with the KTM Group and the party responsible for the existing “Extreme Enduro Series” in order to find a solution for the improvement of the Enduro discipline. We have offered to bring some of those races along with our World Enduro Championship, but after a lot of efforts and meetings, it has not been possible to reach an agreement.
The FIM will not be flexible in environmental rules, safety conditions, protection of our riders and controlling the sport.
