MCNEWS: ISDE Penalties Reversed | Australia slips to second

Focus on Team Australia at the ISDE with Kendall Jennings

More controversy in Slovakia as France take the lead heading into the final day of the International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE).

On the third day of ISDE competition, eight riders did not follow the course, they missed a time check, which is an automatic exclusion from the event.  Marc Bourgeois, Anthony Boissiere, Jeremy Joly, Taylor Robert, Spain’s Lorenzo Santolino, Cristobal Guerrero and David Knight from Great Britain were all excluded from the event by officials.

A protest was lodged and FIM has allowed the riders to compete while negotiations continue. Overnight a decision was made by the FIM has provisionalyl reinstated the riders into the competition. 

Following the disqualification of eight riders by the FIM International Jury on Day 3 of the 2015 FIM International Six Days’ Enduro World Championship in Kosice, Slovakia, the Fédération Française de Motocyclisme (FFM) lodged an appeal yesterday, Thursday 9 September, against the decision of the FIM International Jury with the FIM International Disciplinary Court (CDI) in accordance with Art. 4.5 of the FIM Disciplinary and Arbitration Code (CDA).

In its appeal, the FFM petitioned the CDI for immediate stay of execution of the FIM International Jury’s decision in accordance with Article 4.8 CDA.

In view of the urgent nature of the matter and the exceptional circumstances of the case, the CDI has decided to order stay of execution of the International Jury’s decision and reintegration of all eight riders disqualified into the competition on a provisional basis until further notice.

This order is without prejudice to any decision by the CDI on the merits of the case.

That decision has seen France take the lead in the World Trophy, disappointing Australian enduro supporters as three members of Team France made the mistake that saw them originally removed from the standings. 

The decision should certainly fire up Team Australia for the sixth and final day of the ISDE, the motocross part of the competition.

It will be interesting to see what the FIM does in it’s final decision, and how long that decision will take… Will the ruling effectively promote France to ISDE Victory? Or will the final decision allow Australia to take out all three ISDE Trophy classes?
