If you read our story in the latest issue of Dirt Rider on the ISDE in Slovakia, then you’ll know that we speculated that the winner of the team event would eventually be decided in court. Well, on November 2nd the CDI Sole Judge appointed to hear the case, made a decision on the merits and disqualified the French team, making Australia the overall winners.

The CDI rejected the Appeals lodged by the Fédération Française de Motocyclisme (FFM), the Real Federación de Motociclimo (RFME) and the Auto-Cycle Union (ACU) against the decision of the International jury disqualifying eight riders who missed a Route Check. The disqualification will therefore stand.

The first place in the rankings for the FIM World Trophy therefore goes to Australia, with Italy in second place and Finland in third. Australia is therefore the FIM World Trophy team winner of the 2015 FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE).
