Over 600 riders from 34 countries are in the Algarve taking part in the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) race, the oldest and one of the most popular ‘off-road’ motorcycle events on the FIM calendar.
The event started on Monday (November 11) and is running until Saturday (November 16) and has the Algarve’s international racetrack in Portimão as its paddock headquarters for the week-long race. Some of the world’s top national teams are taking part, including Portugal.
For the six days of racing, organisers have laid on “three unique and distinct courses that will showcase the beauty and incredible Enduro trails the Algarve has to offer”.
“In total, competitors will cover over fifteen hundred kilometres of riding during the event taking them from the world-renowned coastal resorts to the breathtaking mountain peaks of the Serra de Monchique range,” organisers say on the event’s website.
There is free parking at the racetrack and free access to the paddock and special tests. There is also a wealth of information online about where and at what time all the races are taking place.
