3/09/2017

The 92nd International Six Day Enduro has drawn to a close in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France with Sherco’s two leading riders narrowly missing out on podium placings.

Australia’s current EnduroGP World Champion, Matthew Phillips helped guide the Australian Trophy Team to second place behind France. Despite Australia winning the final two days of racing, Team France held enough margin to claim the overall Trophy Team victory over Australia with Finland third.

Phillips completed the six-day event in 5th place in the E3 Class on his Sherco 300 SE-R after a strong final motocross test where he fittingly placed 5th. Phillips placed 19th overall across all classes for the entre six days.

French Trophy Team rider Jeremy Tarroux painfully missed the E1 Class podium placing 4th on his Sherco 250 SEF-R. Tarroux was on fire at various stages of the ISDE, eventually finishing seventh overall across all classes.

Sherco’s Ben Kearns helped steer the Australian Club Team to 24th place amongst a massive field of 167 Club Teams from around the world. Kearns showed glimpses of great speed on his Sherco and looks set to become a future force in the sport of enduro.

Australia’s Women’s Trophy Team dominated the competition to claim victory over the USA and France.
