PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association is pleased to announce the U.S. riders who will contest the 87th International Six Days Enduro. Led by the World Trophy Team of Russell Bobbitt, Mike Brown, Kurt Caselli, Robert Garrison, Charlie Mullins and Taylor Robert, a contingent of 31 U.S. riders will face the best off-road racers from other countries in Saxony, Germany, Sept. 24-29.

“The ISDE represents the pinnacle of world off-road competition, and winning this prestigious event has long been an American dream,” said AMA Off-Road Manager Chuck Weir. “For 2012, we have taken our program to an entirely new level, and we’re going to Germany with one goal in mind: making that dream a reality and standing on the
top of the box this September.”

The ISDE effort this year is managed by Antti Kallonen, who guides KTM North America’s off-road racing teams in U.S.-based series.

“I’m very excited about this year’s Trophy Team,” said Kallonen, whose own professional racing career included competition in the FIM Motocross World Championship. “We
were able to assemble a very fast team. We have a few new riders on the team and  they have proved their speed in our national series. And with manufacturers on
board, all the riders have full support behind them, so they can focus only on racing. This year’s Six Days will have some of the stiffest competition we have seen in
years, but with our team, we have good chance to be on top.”
