It lasted only five days, but the 85th running of the International Six Days Enduro in Moreli, Mexico, was intriguing and intense. By all accounts the event was a tough one as riders spent the week battling against the elements in 6,000 feet of elevation, as the bone-dry ground, chocking dust, and rock-strewn course took its toll. However, a dust up by a local drug cartel on Friday night - after Day Five - put nerves on end and led to the final day being canceled.The week started badly for the U.S. Junior Trophy Team, as team member Cory Buttrick dropped out on Day One when he suffered multiple injuries after he was taken out by a fellow competitor in the dusty conditions.Despite Buttrick's retirement, the U.S. Junior Trophy Team finished on the podium, taking a well-deserved third behind strong performances by ISDE rookies Ian Blythe and Taylor Roberts, and second-year performer Nick Fahringer. Spain won the Junior Trophy with Sweden in second.
