ISDE postponed until next year | News

The International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) scheduled for later this year has been postponed to 30 August to 4 September 2021 due to the ongoing Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The 95th running of the event was set to take place August 31 to September 5 in the Lombardy region of Italy but will now be run in the same location later next year.

Organisers acknowledge they are making the decision early but feel its the right call for all involved.

“Whilst the ISDE was not due to take place until late August early September of this year – between Lombardy and Piedmont, Italy – there are many influencing factors that made it necessary to take a decision sooner rather than later regarding the 95th edition of what remains the oldest event in the FIM international calendar. The annual off-road event attracts several hundred competitors from more than thirty countries around the World each year, all of whom which have to commit to extensive travel and logistic plans several months in advance of the ISDE.

“Moreover, the ISDE demands many months of forward planning and work to prepare many hundred of kilometres of course, all of which rely on the permission of the various local authorities and stakeholders.

“With this in mind the FIM, FMI and the local organising committee decided that in the best interest of all parties, and to ensure that the ISDE continues to hold it place as one of the most important events in the off-road calendar that all early decision to postpone the event was the right and proper action.”

The fifth edition of the FIM Enduro Vintage Trophy has also been postponed and will take place from 2nd to 4th September, between Lombardy and Piedmont in Italy.
