94th Edition: ISDE 2019, Portugal

FOLLOW THE 2019 ISDE with Rotor Adventures 

The 2019 International Six Day Enduro will be based at the prestigious Autodromo do Algarve, Portimao. Just 50 minutes by road from Faro Airport in Southern Portugal, where you will be faced with a mecca for off-road riding

The Event

The ISDE is the ultimate test of both enduro riders & machines as 35 nations (over 600 riders) go head-to-head at enduro competition for a full 6 days, with multiple daily timed stages & minimal opportunity to work on machines. Riders are unassisted for the 6 days, having to carry out the work on the race machinery with only 15 minutes at the start & finish of every day, before their bikes are secured in parc ferme. 

From the days of Steve McQueen & beyond, the ISDE is still the primary completion for enduro riders, national teams & manufacturers

With GB putting together a full World Championship team for 2019, it’s a fantastic opportunity to see our local riders lift the trophy 


Rotor Adventures will be based & accommodated in the beautiful region of South West Portugal for the duration of the ISDE.
