2015 FIM ISDE – Day Minus 6

First full day in Slovakia … we got up early and spent the day walking the special tests for days 5 & 6 of the ISDE.  A lot of beautiful forests, steep hilly terrain and climbs that seem to go on forever.  Altitude ranged from about 600 ft above sea level  in the city to over 2,500 at the high point of several tests. A lot like New England … but steeper ups and downs!  The guys are in great spirits and we all went to the first AMA meeting this evening to meet the Team USA riders and hear from AMA officials about the basic plans for this week as we (riders and support crew) get organized and ready to race!

“Ben Kelley has taken the 2015 J Day Sprint Enduros by storm! Ben has proven his raw speed by winning 3 out of 3 #JDayE events! With the series 4 rounds deep and Ben fulfilling his work credit at round 1, he is a definite favorite for the 2015 Sprint Enduro Championship!”
