Josep Garcia leading the Trophy Team 

Josep Garcia’s absence, due to date clashing with WESS events in 2018, was pretty noticeable on the Spanish Trophy Team who placed a disappointing fifth without the KTM rider’s natural speed onboard. 

Together with ISDE veteran Cristóbal Guerrero, EnduroGP Junior glory chaser Enric Francisco and E1 top five regular Kirian Mirabet, the 2019 Spanish team will stand a stronger podium chance this time around.

Laia Sanz leading Women’s Trophy Team 

After missing the 2018 edition due to illness the multi-time Enduro World Champion Laia Sanz is back to face the mighty Australian Women’s Trophy class.

Together with Laia, Hard Enduro specialist Sandra Gomez and three-time Spanish national enduro champion Mireia Badia will be aiming for at least a podium finish. 

Meanwhile the Junior Trophy team will be formed by three ISDE newcomers: Marc Sans, Pau Tomas and Sergio Navarro.
