Robert Leads E3 After Five Days At ISDE In France
Taylor Robert and Ryan Sipes are still battling for the individual overall award after five days of racing at the International Six Days Enduro in Brive, France. Robert is also currently leading the E3 class and has an excellent chance of winning division, while Sipes sits third in the E1 class. Kailub Russell had his best day so far with a sixth in the E2 class for the day, despite having to change a radiator after getting too close to a wooden course marker in one of the tests.
The US Junior Trophy Team remains in third position and all three riders had good days. Grant Baylor finished 15th in the E2 division despite dislocating his right shoulder in a test. The South Carolina rider was able to pop it back into place by himself and continue the race, which is amazing. Layne Michael had another great day, finishing 10th in the E1 class, while Josh Toth was 14th.
The US Women’s team had the fastest combined time of the day ahead of the leading Australian team and all three riders – Kacy Martinez, Brandi Richards and Becca Sheets – had fast and consistent days. Despite the fact that this is each of the girl’s first Six Days, they are improving with each day and getting faster.
Tomorrow is the final motocross test, and at least 20 motos are expected to go off, counting all the Club classes.
