2015 FIM ISDE – Day Minus 2

Today was filled with final bike preparation in the morning and then at 11:00am the guys started the process of finalizing their registration paperwork, getting their official FIM number plate decals and transponder holder. Next task was to head over to Parc Ferme for technical inspection and impounding their bikes.  All three riders sailed through the sound test and other scrutineering … had the keys parts of their bikes marked … and pushed the bikes to their official spot in a guarded and fenced area where the bikes will stand “impounded” each night during the race.

The second half of the day was filled with the opening ceremony for the ISDE. The teams gathered and marched through town ending up in the village square where several thousand people cheered as each team was introduced and FIM and Slovak government officials welcomed the many countries, participants and spectators to the 2015 International Six Days of Enduro.

J Day Snow Day GP & Sprint Enduro Series

sdap-john1

The 2015 season has begun!  The first J Day winter series race was held this past weekend.  And it was a superb way to start the 2015 race season with John Kelley taking 3rd overall and posting his best ever J Day pro class finish. Right behind him was Josh Toth putting on a solid ride in both motos and finishing 4th overall and this was Josh’s personal best J Day pro class finish as well.  Layne Dutlinger took 9th in the A250 class which is also a great start to the season as he moves up to the expert class.

The new J Day Sprint Enduro series kicks off on February 21 and we are pleased to say that Ben Kelley, Josh Toth and Layne Dutlinger will contest the entire series.  They are all gunning for podiums and to be in the hunt for the championship of this new 8 race series.
