USWE are pleased to announce that they have extended their sponsorship agreement with the American Motorcycle Association and will again support all US racers competing in the 88th ISDE being held in Olbia, Sardinia. USWE will be the official hydration pack supplier of the 2013 US ISDE effort with all AMA riders receiving USWE hydration packs.
Beginning their cooperation with the AMA and its US ISDE program in 2012, USWE, who have notably expanded their involvement in the US off-road scene during the last 12 months, looks forward to assisting the US World Trophy, Junior World Trophy, Women’s World Trophy, and Club teams.
Mike Brown (KTM), Kurt Caselli (KTM), Thad Duvall (Honda), Charlie Mullins (KTM), Taylor Roberts (Kawasaki), and Zac Osborne (Honda) will represent the United States in the World Trophy Team competition. Once again fielding one of the strongest teams in the event, the addition of motocross and supercross racer Osborne into the squad, alongside 2013 Dakar stage winner Kurt Caselli, and X Games gold medal winner Mike Brown, ensures all eyes are very much on the six-rider US World Trophy Team as they bid to improve on the fourth place result secured at last year’s ISDE in Germany.
Grant Baylor (KTM), Kailub Russell (KTM), Andrew Delong (Husqvarna), and Jessie Groemm (Yamaha) will compete in the US World Junior Trophy competition. Rachel Gutish (KTM), Brooke Hodges (KTM), and Amanda Mastin (KTM) will represent the US in the Women’s World Trophy category. Six US Club teams will compete in Sardinia – AMA District 37. Dewitt Powersports, Go Fasters, Jafmar Senior Team, Tony Agonis, and Wellard.
The 2013 FIM International Six Days Enduro takes place in Olbia, Sardinia, Italy, and runs from September 30th to October 5th. 627 riders have entered and will represent 36 nations, competing in five different categories: FIM World Trophy, FIM Junior World Trophy, FIM Women’s World Trophy, Club, and Individual.
21 FIM World Trophy teams, 16 FIM Junior World Trophy teams, 7 FIM Women’s World Trophy Teams, 139 Clubs and 4 Individual riders will take to the start of the event.
Karl Engdahl, USWE General Manager: “Continuing our association and support of the US International Six Days Enduro teams by again partnering with the American Motorcycle Association is great for USWE. As USWE expands further into the US market with its range of hydration products it’s fantastic to be working directly with a wide range of off-road racers. We’ll be helping both experienced World Trophy team members and enthusiastic Club team riders compete in Sardinia – an event that promises to be a truly amazing ISDE. Celebrating 100 years of Six Days competition the race will be as tough as it will be special, with a huge entry from all over the world. Last year’s ISDE in Germany brought notable success for USWE, we hope that will continue this year and that our support of the US riders ensures they stay hydrated, enabling them to perform at their very best.”
