With the promise of a full blown summer and the joys of the great outdoors calling, its time to start planning for the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE), the oldest 'off road' motorcycle event on the FIM calendar.
Being held in and around Figueria da Foz on the central coast of Portugal from October 12-17, 2009, this annual event, eagerly awaited by all Enduro enthusiasts, is a unique opportunity to test personal riding skills against the elements and nature while enjoying six days of unparalleled camaraderie with like-minded people.
The perfect machine for the ISDE
Cyril Despres triumphed over fellow KTM factory teammate Marc Coma in the final eleventh stage of the Tunisia Rally to steal overall victory in the second round of the 2009 World Championship and level the score at 1-1 between the two rivals.
Right from day one of the 4500 km route it was clear that the two KTM riders were going to be each other's toughest rivals. But with the world's top six riders all onboard KTM machines the Tunisia Rally was clearly an overwhelming victory for the cult brand "Made in Austria" machines.
