In 2005 the International Six Days Enduro was once again held in Eastern Europe, with the mountains of Slovakia providing a tough and testing challenge for more than 200 riders from over 20 countries around the world.
The ISDE is known as the Olympics of Motorcycling as it pits more than a score of six-rider national teams against one another in the World Trophy competition. This time it was the Italians who topped the results table, breaking the three-year grip that the Finnish team had held on the trophy. Finland had to settle for second, while third was the Swedish team, with Great Britain in fourth.
In the individual competition, Poland's Bartosz Obluski took the Enduro 1 category, while Australian ace, Stefan Merriman, triumphed in the Enduro 2 class. The British rider, David Knight from the Isle of Man, dominated the Enduro 3 heavyweight class and emphasised his World Championship quality by also taking the honours as the best individual rider in the whole competition.
This official review tells the full story of the 2005 Six Days with on-board, trackside and behind-the-scenes highlights as well as containing bonus Extra coverage of the previous three years' events.
This is definitely a 'must-have' for any fans of off-road motorcycle sport!
