The 85th running of the FIM International Six Days Enduro offered tough terrain, fierce competition and tension-packed racing. Now you can relive the highlights of the 2010 “Olympics of Motorcycling” with the official, action-packed review.
Held in Morelia, Mexico, the ISDE 2010 attracted 378 of the very best Enduro riders from 28 nations. They would face an average of more than 130 miles of the hardest riding every day, battling their way up and down mountains, through thick forests and across dusty plains. Designed by six-time Enduro champion Gio Sala, the Mexican course would prove the ultimate test for rider and machine.
Skill was to the fore in every class, but misfortune played a major role as teams lost key members through accident and injury. However, the competition for victory was nail-biting, and, despite the final day’s stages being cancelled, the ISDE 2010 proved to be one of the most competitive international Enduro showdowns ever seen.
This review features a look back at the Women’s World Cup, the Junior Trophy and the World Trophy, with action highlights, interviews with the stars, a look at the bikes being worked on and informed commentary guiding you through the event.
