The International Six Days Enduro 2019, the 94th edition of the oldest race under the auspices of the International Motorcycling Federation, will bring together more than 600 riders from 34 countries in the Algarve starting today, Saturday 9.
The race will be held for the third time on Portuguese soil and will feature a total of 37 Portuguese riders in the race, divided by the three teams (senior, junior and female), to which 27 riders are part of the nine club teams that will be on the start stage of the race.
The ISDE nerve center will be the Algarve International Race Track, which in the early hours of Saturday morning will see the first of more than 600 drivers present start six intense days of competition that will animate the Algarve in a unique and special event.
The riders who finish the race will travel over 1,500 kilometers and will be about eight hours a day at the helm of their bikes, in what is an intense marathon where riders and machines fight daily against the terrain and the relentless chronometer.
Today, Saturday, 9, the presentation ceremony will take place in the riverside area of Portimão, European City of Sport in 2019, from 17:00 hours. Teams from 34 nations from all continents will be presented.
Born in 1913, the ISDE, or International Six Days Enduro, has its birthplace in England, but then under the name International Six Days Trial, receiving the current name only in 1981.
