Compared to the relatively high popularity of the International Six Days Enduro among foreign racers, it seems that Americans always have a tough time gaining support for this prestigious event. Just gathering the funds to travel across the pond is a feat in itself, and when you add in bike, parts, gear, support crew and other travel expenses, Six Days is an expensive venture for any American to undertake.
Nate Kanney, an ISDE veteran and dedicated off-road racer, is currently preparing for the 2011 ISDE in Finland. As part of the fundraising initiative for Nate’s 2011 Team USA Trophy Team effort, WMR Competition Performance-an MX and off-road race shop out of Florida, as well as an online superstore and Kanney’s main sponsor-is offering a collector’s edition t-shirt designed by longtime Kanney friend and fan Jerry Bernardo. The shirt sells for $25, all of which directly goes toward Kanney’s expenses for the race.
Go to www.WMR1.com to get your hands on a great shirt and support Kanney’s ISDE initiative. Also, check out the Dirt Rider Facebook page, as we’re giving away one of these shirts to a lucky reader!
