Final Cross Test – Day 6
USA World Trophy Team
After taking the lead and building on it since Day 2, the team of Great Britain's fastest riders come out on top to win the World Trophy, marking their first win since 1953! With a full team of healthy riders lead by Nathan Watson, they battled the world for eleven laps until celebrations started and they were crowned victorious. Italy's Andrea Verona was the overall winner of the day and helped bump the Italians to the second place spot, beating Spain's overall time by only five tenths of a second. It was host nation France who took fourth, with the United States in fifth. All four US riders made it through the six days but were simply beat by an unbelievably fast field of the world's best riders.
USA Junior World Trophy Team
Leading from Day 1, the young guns of Italy swept the 6 Days in high fashion as they win the Junior World Trophy for a second year in a row! Despite keeping close to the leaders, Finland had to settle for a second place overall in front of the third place Australians. Although the USA was out as a team, Austin Walton claimed the overall individual win on Day 6 atop Italy's Morgan Lesiardo and fellow USA teammate Mateo Oliveira.
USA Womens World Trophy Team
Many expected it to be another title defense for the ladies of the USA, but after a crucial injury on Day 4 Great Britain would take the number 1 spot and hold that lead through the finale, earning their first ever Womens World Trophy! They maintained a healthy lead over native France and Australia. Winning the individual overall for the day was the USA's Korie Steede finishing before Canada's Shelby Turner and USA teammate Rachel Gutish.
Anson Maloney (GTBN Team)
49th O/A Club, 20th in C2, 10th US Club Rider
Anson would have a rough start to Day 6's Motocross Test, getting an undesirable start off the gate and getting caught up in a big pile up in the first lap. But Maloney would work his way up and have some exciting battles to finish 49th out of over 300 riders overall. His end results are 20th in Club, 7th in the C2 class, and the 5th fastest Club rider for the USA! He rode as the fastest competitor for the GTBN Club Team with Travis Reynaud and Jaden Dahners to finish just out of the top five, securing the spot as the 6th fastest Club Team out of 128 against a very fast field of the world's best Club riders.
Anson is very happy with his performance in this year's ISDE and is stoked to have gotten through without issues in health or his bike. It is unclear whether he'll make another run at future ISDEs, "but maybe again someday!"
Anthony Ferrante (Mojo Team)
71st O/A Club, 27th in C1, 12th US Club Rider
Anthony would also have a rough start to the moto test, getting pushed to the outside on the sweeping first turn and getting caught in the same pile up as Anson. He would finish 29th of 30 in his moto and 71st overall in Club on the day. Despite not having the Day 6 he wanted, Ferrante would finish the Six Days in an impressive 26th overall in Club, 13th in the C1 class, and the 6th fastest rider for the USA right behind his teammate Anson!
In his 2nd FIM ISDE outing Anthony had a ton of fun repping the USA and the Mojo Motosport Club Team. While Day 6 didn't go as we wanted, he gave it his all and is very proud of his riding throughout the 6 Days!
Dunlop GeoMax Challenge
Day 6 of Club competition wasn't all that bad for Mojo riders Maloney and Ferrante, as they finished in the 2nd and 3rd place overall spots for the podium of the Dunlop Geomax Challenge! XC Gear Club Team's Kai Aiello was the fastest of the challenge making it and American sweep on the podium as the top 5 riders of the challenge earn prizes such as rider kits, a special 6Days tire package, merch, and more. Awesome job guys!
Overall MojoMotoSport is very proud of each rider we helped send off to France. Our two veterans finished yet another ISDE and our two new riders walk away with incredible experiences to build upon in the future. Thank you to everyone who has supported the journey and kept up with our guys throughout the week, we will have to see who will qualify for Argentina next year!
Thanks for the great update we are very proud of all our boys congratulations to all
