2023 and 2024 ISDE host countries confirmed

During the recent FIM Board meeting the host countries for the next two editions of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) were confirmed as follows: 2023 Argentina (CAMOD) and 2024 Spain (RFME).

Next year will see the ISDE return to Argentina, this being only the second time that this historic event has visited this South American country, the inaugural visit being back in 2014 when the enduro world descended on San Juan for a memorable edition of the 6DAYS. David Eli – Director of +Eventos was at the helm eight years ago and therefore has previous experience of organising a successful ISDE alongside other high-profile events such as the MXGP of Patagonia and the Desafio Ruta 40 – Cross-Country Rallies, all staged in Argentina. Details regarding dates / location will be released during this year’s ISDE in France.

Then a year later, in 2024, the FIM International Six Days of Enduro will return to Spain for the fifth occasion, with this enduro rich country having previously hosted the event in 1970 – El Escorial, 1985 – Alp, 2000 – Granada and 2016 – Navarra. The last time the 6DAYS was held in Spain in 2016 it also marked the first edition of the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy, which took place during the last three days of the competition at that time, with both the modern and historic event attracting a high level of entries. As is traditional full details of this event will be released during the 2023 ISDE.

Post pandemic and more than one hundred years since the first ISDE was run in Great Britain, confirmation of the next two editions of the 6DAYS at this early stage reinforces that the event remains one of the most important off-road competitions for national federations and the motorcycle industry. Moreover, with travel now back to normal, the return of the ISDE to Argentina next year confirms that it continues to be a real global competition with the plan to visit other overseas countries every three or four years to assist with the development of important markets for enduro.

Delighted to be able to confirm the next two host countries Jorge Viegas – FIM President said: “Interest to stage the 6DAYS post the pandemic is both strong and healthy and will allow us to return to our plan of taking this long-standing competition to new and established countries throughout the world so it can play its part in growing new enduro markets. The next three editions of the ISDE in France, Argentina and Spain respectively will really cement the huge importance of this event in the international off-road calendar as one of the biggest and most import occasions each year.”

Whilst planning has already started for 2023 and 2024, the immediate focus is on this year’s ISDE to be held at Le Puy-en-Velay, France from Monday 29 August to Saturday 3 September, which is now less than three months away.

2022 FIM ISDE – 96th edition – to be held at Le Puy en Velay – France

The 96th edition of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) will take place at Puy en Velay – France, the capital of the Haute-Loire department in the heart of the Auvergne region – Rhône–Alpes, from Monday 29 August to Saturday 3 September 2022.

The first edition of the ISDE in France dates back to 1920 in Grenoble, in the same region as the next edition. The event was then called the “ISDT” for “International 6 Days of Trial”, enduro did not yet exist. 60 years later, in 1980 and for the second time in its history, France hosted the ISDE in the Haute Loire in Brioude, the area where the first enduro competition in the country had been organised 8 years earlier. More recently, the last French edition of the FIM ISDE was organised in 2017 in Brive.

The FIM by entrusting the organisation of the event to the FFM and the Organising Committee is allowing a return to the roots of the event in France. More recently, this same region hosted the final round of the 2021 Borilli FIM Enduro GP World Championship in Langeac (just forty kilometres from Puy en Velay) and 2019 in Ambert (seventy kilometres from Puy en Velay), these two Grand Prixs enjoyed a lively success in particular from the point of view of the crowd, and the enthusiasm they brought to the event.

The Organising Committee (COISDE–2022) is made up of three motorcycle clubs specialising in the discipline, the Moto Club du Puy en Velay, the Moto Club de Saugues and the Moto Club Moto Verte Haute Lozère, which will benefit from the full support of the FFM and the Regional stakeholders.

The COISDE–2022 has been working for more than six months on the creation of the course by being focused on two main points: to propose a course as the riders like them, varied with breath–taking landscapes and a certain technical level specific to the DNA of the ISDE.

The route will be organised around three completely different loops each of around two hundred kilometres, which will take the competitors on a journey to the heart of the region and beyond, with no less than thirteen different special tests and five timed tests per day, 5 service time checks per day, including 2 double ones, so only 3 separate spots in order to limit the logistics for the teams:

Days 1 & 2 – Loop 1: Haute Loire – Haut Allier – Gévaudan
Days 3 & 4 – Loop 2: Haute Loire – Lozère – Langogne
Day 5 – Loop 3: Haute Loire – Puy en Velay – Emblavez
Day 6 – Final Cross Test: Haute Loire – Puy en Velay, in the immediate vicinity of the Paddock.

Always with the aim to reduce costs for all the teams, pro and amateur alike, the FIM wanted to reduce the length of stay by one day by eliminating the day between the last day of checks and the first day of racing. So, the timing of the event will be as follows:

Tuesday 23 August: Opening of the Paddock
Friday 16 August to Sunday 28 August late morning: Administrative and technical controls
Saturday 27 August – Evening: Opening ceremony at Puy en Velay, ten kilometres from the paddock
From Monday 29 August to Saturday 3 September: The race.
Sunday 4 September: Closure of the Paddock.

The pre-registrations opening is scheduled for January 2022.
