Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

World Trophy Team France held the lead through Day 2 of the 2012 International Six Days Enduro in Germany thanks to the collective efforts of the six-rider squad. French competitors dominated each of the individual classes, with Antoine Meo coming in as the fastest overall in E1, Pierre-Alexandre Renet in E2 and Christophe Nambotin in E3. Team Australia followed as the second-fastest team of the day, over 12 minutes off the lead pace. The Italian team made up ground from their fifth-place showing on Day 1, moving up to third overall in World Trophy standings with Finland and Spain dropping to fourth and fifth, respectively. The US Team held steady in sixth overall, though they are now over 19 minutes behind Team France.

The lone American rider in E1, KTM’s Mike Brown, came in 10th while E2 riders Charlie Mullins and Taylor Robert were sixth and seventh, respectively, in their class. Also in E2, Thad DuVall followed in 11th for the Jr. Trophy squad, and team captain Kurt Caselli was 15th as he shook off the effects of a crash yesterday. Husqvarna rider Andrew DeLong (Jr. Trophy) came across in 23rd with Destry Abbott in 26th. Russell Bobbitt was the fastest US Team rider in E3, taking 20th. Kawasaki rider Taylor Robert posted some of the strongest results through the special test sections, taking seventh in ST 1, 10th in ST 3 and fifth in ST 5. Mullins was the top American in ST 2 and ST 4, taking 10th and 12th, respectively.

Team France jumped to second overall and the Americans settled into third with DuVall coming in as the fastest US Junior Trophy Team rider of the day.
