We are only five days away to start the action in San Juan for the 89th edition of the International Six Days of Enduro. However, teams have started today with training sessions in the circuit specially made behind the Bicentennial Stadium, which will take place until next Saturday.
From early in the morning, competitors dressed up and headed to the circuit were they tested their vehicles for the first time in San Juan. Practice sessions were extended to the afternoon and great part of the participants started their sessions.
Canadians and Australians were the first ones on the circuit and both teams were satisfied with it.
The test start with a gravel and mud section with lots of turns and then enters a sector with small stones in a straight line that allows to speed up. After that, bikers can find a tough section among rocks with ups and downs so as to get to the final section on gravel with some climbings.
Trevor Turner, father of Shelby and Avery, observed closely his sons movements during the training and pointed out that “it is a great circuit that gathers almost all the faces that a special test may encounter”.
Shelby who will be competing in the Women Trophy, showed herself exhausted with her first experience in San Juan “it is really good, there are some complicated sections, especially with stones and muddy sections. It is a good test to train”.
Practices will continue this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. As from tomorrow, Administrative and Technical Scrutineer for competitors will start.
