PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Twenty-one of the nation’s best amateur off-road racers have been organized into seven teams that will represent the United States at the 2019 FIM International Six Days Enduro.
The U.S. ISDE Club teams will join the U.S. ISDE World Trophy, Women’s World Trophy and Junior World Trophy teams in representing their country at the 94th running of the grueling international off-road championship on Nov. 11-16 in Portimao, Portugal.

The 2019 U.S. ISDE Club Team sponsors include AMA District 37, the Elizabeth Scott Community, the Eric Cleveland Memorial Fund, Gas Gas, the Missouri Mudders, MOJO Motorsports, and XC Gear.
“The AMA expresses its gratitude to the seven sponsors who have stepped up to support the United States’ official entry into international off-road racing’s most prestigious event,” AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Erek Kudla said. “We’ve assembled seven very talented club teams for the 2019 ISDE, and look forward to seeing these riders represent their country on the world stage.”
Other sponsors of the U.S. ISDE effort include Coastal Racing, FMF, KTM, Bonanza Plumbing, Trail Jesters, Aria Helmets, Rabaconda, Motion Pro, the Kurt Caselli Foundation, Spectro Performance Oils and Hall’s Cycles.
The teams were organized based on qualifying series results, location and team requests for specific riders. For example, the Gas Gas Team includes riders who are sponsored by Gas Gas. The Eric Cleveland Memorial team is made up of “first time” ISDE riders, and all Elizabeth Scott Foundation Team riders are age 40 or older.
Another source of support for the U.S. ISDE teams is the sale of officially-licensed U.S. ISDE Team t-shirts. Get yours today by visiting www.fs4.formsite.com/AMARacing/na4arjhiij/index.html.
