East, West series scheduled March through May

PICKERINGTON, OH – December 15, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) –  Two American Motorcyclist Association-sanctioned International Six Days Enduro Qualifier Series will be used to determine which amateur off-road racers will represent the United States at the 2021 FIM International Six Days Enduro in Italy.

The 2021 AMA East Region ISDE Qualifier Series and the 2021 AMA West Region ISDE Qualifier Series each consist of three rounds, beginning in March and ending in May. The 95th edition of the ISDE is scheduled for Aug. 30-Sept. 4 in Lombardy-Piedmont, Italy.

The U.S. ISDE team won the World Trophy and Women’s World Trophy championships at the 2019 ISDE, as well as the Club Cup title. The American Junior World Trophy team placed second in its class. The 2020 ISDE was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Quote

“With the World, Women’s and Club Trophies still held by the U.S. ISDE Team, and after missing a year of racing, our riders are very excited to return to represent the country in international competition,” AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Erek Kudla said. “The qualifying process has been very successful in getting our fastest riders from either coast onto our Club teams, and we are looking forward to another great year at the world championship event.”

In the 2021 qualifiers, riders receive an overall score for each day of competition and will be ranked by their four highest scores at the end of each series.

Selected riders will be organized into seven three-member U.S. Club teams, which include the overall top seven riders from each of the two qualifier series, as well as the top 40-plus rider from each qualifier series. Five riders are selected by the AMA ISDE Advisory Committee, which also selects the U.S. ISDE Trophy teams.

The seven American Club teams compete alongside the three U.S. ISDE World Trophy teams at the event.

I guess we'll never see GoPro footage of that.

If we had a real Moto media, they'd be asking the AMA how an under the visor setup is gonna put undo torque on the rider's head anymore than the visor by itself?

If they were really worried about safety the AMA would mandate things like neck braces and torso protection.  That in itself has its own problems because if someone got hurt and argued the neck brace caused the injury AMA might be found to have some liability.  So they don't, they don't care about rider safety if it could create any culpability for them.  On the GoPro, it's easy to ban something like it and say it's for safety, because in no way is a GoPro going to provide protection.  Covering their own @$$ is all they care about, not rider safety.

Jeez, all you’ve got to do is mount the camera somewhere other then on the top or side of the helmet.

I just saw that. What a bummer. The first race of the west was also supposed to be a sprint enduro.
