Australia Women's Team Crowned Five Time ISDE Champions

The Team is spearheaded by three of the finest women Off-Road riders the world has seen. Tayla Jones, Jessica Gardiner and Jemma Wilson, have secured their place in ISDE history with a stellar performance. Jones finishing overall second, Gardiner in fourth and Wilson in seventh.


Five Time World Champions
 
In what was a glorious day in Brive, the Womens Wold Trophy team raced around a purpose built motocross style track, completing five laps taking two minutes each. The day started in wet conditions before the sun eventually broke through clouds, which allowed for a spectacular track and perfect weather, for what was a mega crowd for the Final Moto.
 
Once again, Tayla Jones was engaged in a battle with Spain’s Laia Sanz to be the fastest Womens Enduro Rider in the world. However, it would be Laia to get the hole shot and lead the way, relegating Jones to third, Gardiner in fifth, followed very closely by Wilson in sixth for the day. Jones would still lead her team to an incredible fifth consecutive title, despite coming second overall.
 
This will be Jemma Wilson’s final year representing her country as she goes out on a high note as an historic five time World Champion. As a result, 2017 will sadly mark the last time we see this unbelievable trio competing together again.

Australian Seniors World Trophy Team Finishes Second for ISDE

Team Australia were gallant in defeat, the French simply too strong and fast on their home soil. With the lead that the French had accumulated in the opening days, it was always going to be a tough ask to reel in the significant lead. Team Australia can be very proud to place second in a highly completive world event. All of the Senior riders were able to finish inside the top 20 and make up ground in the Final Moto.
 
Josh Green had a phenomenal start and managed a position as high as third, although he would drop back one spot to fourth when Garcia managed to overtake him on the first lap. After battling hard, Green was able to hold fourth spot with amazing consistency. The fourth place had Green finish seventh in the E1 class. Green would finish overall 18th in the standings.

Daniel Milner got off to a respectable start sitting in 8th, although slowly pegged his way back and was able to make some great passes and take 6th spot. He has been superb all week, leading from the front continuing his form from this year's Australian Off-Road Championship. He would finish fourth outright and also 2nd in E2 Class by one minute and 32 seconds from the winner.
