Yes, you read that title right. The former Supercross and Motocross star Ryan Sipes took the outright individual overall win at the 2015 FIM International Six Days Enduro in Kosice, Slovakia today. The Team USA Rockstar Husqvarna pilot outdueled Team Australia’s Daniel Milner on the final day for the Enduro 2 class win and earned the highest individual honor you can achieve at the grueling six-day marathon. Third overall individual honors for the week went to France’s Loic Larrieu.
Team USA had no shot at the Nations overall because of some bad luck. Team USA was first overall after day one, but the team lost their star rider and GNCC Champion, Kailub Russell, on day three, and Thad Duvall later in day four. At the end of the event today, France was crowned the FIM World Trophy team winners with Australia and Spain occupying the second and third spots on the podium.
