MA advises that Australian Team rider applications for the 2017 International Six Day Enduro (ISDE), have now closed and that MA intends on announcing the finalised team later this month (April).
As a matter of courtesy, MA wishes to inform 2017 ISDE applicants that whilst MA has significantly increased its funding for the ISDE from previous years, there is unfortunately still a substantial shortfall in overall funding required to cover the costs of all participants travelling to France.
At this stage, the shortfall means that only the World Trophy Team (4 riders) and the Womens World Trophy Team (3 riders) will be able to participate with full funding. Unfortunately, without additional external funding, there is no scope for the Junior World Trophy Team to represent Australia at the 2017 ISDE without the need for the Junior World Trophy Team members to individually self-fund.
Therefore, MA is seeking expressions of interest for all types of sponsorship including naming right sponsorship, for the World Trophy Team, Womens World Trophy Team & Junior World Trophy Team, so that Australian riders can travel to and compete in the 2017 ISDE. As funds increase through sponsorship and or donations will contribute to our overall shortfall and help send the all three teams fully funded.
The expected duration away for riders competing in this year's FIM International Six Day Enduro will be approximately 17 days - departing on the 20th of August and returning on the 5th September 2017.
