MojoMotoSport Club Team Report – ISDE Edition 8 – Day 6


The 2019 ISDE is over, and the American contingent has exceeded all expectations!  The good ol’ U.S.A. finished this year’s event with overall wins in three out of the four team events, and the best performance for our country in the history of this prestigious event.  The final day was changed at the last minute from the traditional motocross test to basically a dirt road test with a hastily constructed table top criss crossing the pavement of the local autodrome go-kart track.  The key for the leaders was to just finish the day without making any mistakes, and to ride smooth and fast.  The Americans were able to do just that, and ended their race in a cloud of burnt rubber celebrating victory!  Here’s a final rundown of the overall results for the Americans by class:


Men’s World Trophy Team

The American Men’s World Trophy Team won the ISDE for only the second time ever this year!  Fast and consistent riding by all four members allowed them to finish only 1:45.34 ahead of the Australians and 12:37.50 ahead of the Italian team. Here’s how the men finished in the overall by class individually:


Ryan Sipes – E1 2nd place overall 6:38.27 seconds behind winner Josep Garcia

Taylor Robert – E2 1st place overall

Kailub Russell – E2 2nd place overall only 1:40.65 behind Robert

Steward Baylor – E3 3rd place overall 10:25.82 behind winner Daniel Sanders


Women’s World Trophy

The American Women’s World Trophy Team also won the team overall, snapping a six-year win streak by the Australians!  The German women claimed second place, behind by 8:51.21. Great Britain came in third place, behind the lead by 18:55.73. Here’s how the U.S. women ended up in the individual overall rankings:


Brandy Richards - EW 2nd place overall only 1:09.95 behind winner Maria Franke

Rebecca Sheets – EW 6th place overall 14:38.49 back

Tarah Gieger - EW 8th place overall 16:37.36 behind


Junior World Trophy

The Junior World Trophy team raced exceptionally well, and rode fast all the way to the finish.  Unfortunately, they weren’t able to do enough for the win, but finished in second place 9:13.94 back of the Australian squad.  Spain picked up a third-place finish, 28:49.31 out from the lead.  Here are the U.S. Junior Team’s individual overall rankings after six days of enduro:


Joshua Toth – E1 10th place overall 15:21.17 behind winner Josep Garcia

Grant Baylor – E2 6th place overall 6:31.57 behind winner Taylor Robert

Ben Kelley – E2 9th place overall 7:58.00 seconds back
