MSR Rider’s Hold 4 Of The 10 Six Days Spots
IRVINE, CA – May 11, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The AMA has announced U.S. Trophy Team and Junior Trophy Team for the 90th International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) to be held in Kosice, Slovakia. Ryan Sipes, Grant Baylor, Justin Jones and Layne Michael will be flying the MSR colors for Team USA September 7-12, 2015. Sipes is part of the Trophy Team while the young guns Baylor, Jones and Michael will lead the way for the Junior Trophy Team for riders under the age of 23.
Last year’s Six Days in Argentina was one of the best ever for Team USA, with the Junior Trophy Team winning for the third time in history, and the U.S. Trophy Team finishing a close runner up to defending champs, France. “Great riders and terrain similar to what they race on in the U.S. bodes well for the entire Team USA effort this year in Slovakia,” says MSR Brand Manager Nick McBride. MSR has a history with ISDE/ISDT. In fact the brand was originally named after founder Malcolm Smith’s gold medals won in Six Days competition.
“Despite his trademark smile, nobody took upholding America’s honor at Six Days more seriously than Malcolm,” adds McBride. Starting with a silver medal before capturing his first ISDT Gold in Poland in 1967, Malcolm went on to win seven more, with the eighth and final gold medal coming in 1976 in Austria.
“I still get chills watching Malcolm go for the gold in On Any Sunday! What better tribute to Malcolm than MSR riders winning gold medals in Slovakia this year,” concludes McBride.
