PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- You might not be able to race with the U.S. team at the 2015 FIM International Six Days Enduro in Kosice, Slovakia, Sept. 7-12, but you can have their backs by purchasing an official U.S. team T-shirt from the American Motorcyclist Association.
All proceeds from the T-shirts support the U.S. effort in the ISDE. You can buy a T-shirt on the AMA website at www.americanmotorcyclist.com > Racing > ISDE > Buy An Official ISDE T-Shirt.
Antti Kallonen, manager of the U.S. ISDE team, said that while plans are coming together well for the 2015 effort, all assistance is appreciated.
"Having selected and announced the U.S. World Trophy and Junior Trophy Teams back in April, the riders are well on their way to preparing for this major undertaking," Kallonen said. "All of our teams will be racing for world titles this year, and we're eager to give them the best support we can. The ISDE is a major logistical effort, and it's very expensive on both a rider and team level.
"We encourage all fans of off-road to purchase a fundraising T-shirt for 2015 and support our race for gold in Slovakia," Kallonen added.
Leading the U.S. effort on the U.S. World Trophy Team are Mike Brown, Thad Duvall, Taylor Robert, Kailub Russell, Ryan Sipes and Gary Sutherlin. Brown will serve as team captain. The U.S. Junior Trophy Team will include Grant Baylor, Steward Baylor, Justin Jones and Layne Michael.
Three premier teams represent the United States at the ISDE. In addition to the six-member World Trophy Team and the Junior Trophy Team, which includes four riders younger than 23 years old, the U.S. fields a Women's Trophy Team at the event. Several club team members also represent the United States at Six Days.
