Enduro21.com has learned that the 2014 FIM International Six days Enduro looks likely to be headed to Argentina, with Mega Eventos, the company that organised the recent second round of the Maxxis FIM Enduro World Championship set to run the event.
Doing a superb job of promoting and organising their first ever EWC event recently, Mega Eventos are hopeful of hosting a second Enduro World Championship event in 2013 before welcoming the ISDE to Argentina in 2014.
With the six days set to take place in Germany this year and then in Sardinia in 2013 no official word has been made by the FIM as to where the event will be held in two years time. However that announcement is expected any time soon.
With numerous FIM representatives in Argentina for the recent EWC event held at the end of March, the smart money suggests that an imminent return to South America is most definitely on the cards for the ‘Olympics of Motorcycling’.
Adding fuel to that fire that suggest the six days will head to Argentina is the fact that South America has twice been selected to host the event in the past six years with Chile staging the race in 2007 and Mexico in 2010.
By the time the 2013 ISDE comes around the six days will have spent three years in Europe – Finland 2011, Germany 2012, Italy 2013 – which in the eyes of the sport’s governing body will mean that it’s high time the event was held outside of Europe.
Mega Eventos, who assist Dakar organisers ASO with the Argentinean stages of the world’s most famous rally event as well as organising the World Rally Championship’s Rally of Argentina, delivered an extremely well organised EWC GP of Argentina showing that they are more than capable of delivering a first class ISDE.
