2010 (ISDE) Called Off

After battling through hundreds of miles of challenging tests and terrain, multiple bike fixes, and the occasional crash, the 2010 International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) was called off prematurely due to escalating violence in Morelia, Mexico.
The FIM Sports Director, Ignacio Verneda offered this statement, “Throughout this entire event, we have made security our number one priority,” Verneda said. “With recent activities between area drug cartels and authorities, and an incident that occurred between (local organized crime groups) and police last night here in the city of Morelia, the FIM feels that it is best to cancel Day 6.”
While no one associated with the ISDE was involved with the incidents taking place Morelia, everyone agreed it was in the event and competitors’ best interests to cancel the final day of racing.
Despite the event being shortened by a day, the various USA teams put in some impressive results earning multiple podium finishes and gold medals. Gold medals were awarded to those participants finishing within ten percent of their class’ top competitor’s total elapsed time.
The top finishing U.S. team was the Women’s World Trophy Team, made up of Nicole Bradford, Amanda Mastin and Kerrie Swartz. The trio finished second to France and took home a well-deserved gold medal. Bradford, a Moose Racing rider, was the top-finishing individual in fourth place.
