SHERCO SUCCESS AT ISDE

The International Six Day Enduro is regarded as the Olympics of Off-Road racing. The annual event pits country against country where each nation fields its best six riders in the Trophy Team category.

While the Australian Trophy Team suffered some bad luck with three riders failing to finish, the French Team fared much better by claiming the overall win with three of their riders performing well on Sherco machinery.

 

Jeremy Tarroux’s fast and consistent ride eventually saw him place 3rd in the highly competitive E1 class while fellow Sherco riders Anthony Boissiere was 8th in E2 and Fabien Planet was 14th in E3 after running as high as 4th position at the mid-point of the event.  

 

“To have half of the winning team at the ISDE all riding Sherco is fantastic and a result that Sherco is particularly proud of,” explained Sherco Australia’s Stephen Tuff.

“The Six Day is a big event and by all reports this year’s race in Argentina was punishing on equipment. It’s incredibly satisfying to see the Sherco riders not only making it through, but also standing on the top step of the podium.”

 

The Australian Women’s Team tasted the ultimate success by winning the division with Sherco’s Jessica Gardiner leading the charge. The 300SEF-R mounted rider took the outright win, leading home an Aussie trifecta with Jemma Wilson and Tayla Jones second and third.
