Taylor Robert Claims Outright Victory At ISDE 2016
October 20 – 2016
Taylor Robert secured the outright victory at the 91st running of the International Six Days Enduro in Navarra, Spain. The Arizona native took the overall lead at the end of day two and remained in control of the event for the rest of the week. His result helped Team USA top the World Trophy Team standings for the first time ever.
“Words can’t explain just how much this double win means to me. As a team we’ve been trying for so long but finally this has been our week. Everyone made some mistakes but we helped each other. We all went out there and put in our best effort.” Taylor Robert
Putting in what was arguably the most impressive performance of his young career Josep Garcia earned victory in the Enduro 1 category, finishing as the third fastest outright rider. Topping the overall standings on a dry and dusty day two, the 20-year-old Spaniard wrapped up the event with a second outright victory on day five.
Laia Sanz ended her very first participation at the ISDE with a close runner-up individual result in Enduro Women’s class. The reigning Enduro World Champion also led Spain’s Women’s World Trophy Team to a runner-up result.
“The dry conditions during the first two days suited my style so I managed to get the overall victory on day two. But I’m really happy I got with a second outright victory on day five. I really couldn’t think of a better way to end this season,” Josep Garcia
It took Danny McCanney no time to gel with his new Husky 300cc two-stroke in Spain. Ending the event fourth in Enduro 3, Danny played a vital part for Great Britain to secure a strong runner-up result in the World Trophy Team classification.
Steward Baylor was the fastest American junior in the overall standings. Finishing sixth in Enduro 2 class, the KTM rider helped Team USA secure the runner-up spot in the Junior World Trophy Team competition.
Ending his debut season in enduro racing on a high, Pascal Rauchenecker claimed an eventual fourth place result in the Enduro 1 class of the Spanish ISDE. The Husqvarna rider also placed 14th outright.
