2010 ISDE Mexico Day 6 Cancelled

Saturday, November 6, 2010
Johnny Aubert continued his success in Mexico by capturing all nine special tests during Day 2.
Racing will not take place on Day 6 due to safety concerns. Results from Day 5 will stand as the final scores.
Due to an unrelated criminal incident, Day 6 of the 2010 ISDE in Morelia, Mexico has been cancelled. Day 5 Results will be recorded as the final standings. MotoUSA contributor and ISDE aficionado, Chilly White, has been in contact with ISDE family members and reports on Enduro360.com that drug cartels exploded gas tankers somewhere nearby.

ISDE organizers are understandably concerned for rider and spectator safety, electing to call off the final day of riding. This is blow to the United States team since Day 6 is always a motocross competition. The Americans typically have an advantage on the MX track and have used the final day to improve their standings in the past. The differences in the team standings might be too great to overcome, but individual placing could change. For instance, Kurt Caselli is within striking distance of the E1 podium and Taylor Robert is even closer to claiming ninth place in E2. Regardless, safety is the most important consideration. Scroll down to read official statements from the organizers.

The following are official releases from the ISDE website:

The organising committee of the eighty-fifth FIM International Six Days Enduro has decided to cancel the final day of the competition, a decision that has been fully supported by the FIM Jury.

No one involved in the event has been effected in anyway by the actions that occurred in the region overnight. These actions were in no way connected to the event and took place some considerable distance from the host city of Morelia.

The decision has been taken to ensure the safety and security of all persons involved with the event and of the spectators due to watch the final motocross test.

Results as of the end of day five, most of which were already clear and decisive, will now be declared as the final official results of the eighty-fifth edition of the FIM International Six Days Enduro.

The prize giving ceremony will take place as originally planned this evening in the city of Morelia.


FIM Sports Director - Ignacio Verneda and President of the 2010 ISDE Organising Committee - Luis Otero have now issued the following statements about the earlier decision to cancel the final day of the eighty-fifth edition of the FIM International Six Days Enduro.

Ignacio Verneda stated:
“Firstly I would like to congratulate the organising committee on delivering an excellent sporting event, which has reflected a good image of the discipline of enduro. After five days of such a good competition, I am happy with the decision that has been taken by the organising committee and the FIM Jury.”

“This is 100% the correct decision, as in all cases the security and safety of everyone involved with the event is the most important consideration. Although the risk was only very minimal, we prefer not to take any risk at all. In all cases the decision has been well accepted by the riders, the teams and all those associated with the event.”

Luis Otero stated:
“The organising committee are extremely sad about this situation, as so far we have enjoyed a fantastic competition. From the start our philosophy was to have fun and for five days everyone has had incredible fun. However due to circumstances beyond our control we have now taken the difficult, but correct decision to cancel the final day.”

“Everyone has seen the steps we have taken to safeguard the security of this magnificent event and in no way do we want to jeopardise the smiles that everyone have been wearing on their faces this week. Our main goal has been the security of the riders in the hills, but now the priority is for the authorities to provide security for all the people in the region.”

The state and federal police attempted to capture the head of a large drug cartel that operates in Morelia. He was shot and killed in the process in a town called Patzcuaro about 45 minutes outside of Morelia. Because of that the cartels reeked havoc on the city in retaliation. I for one am happy that the Mexican government is doing what it can to stop the cartels. To bad for the Mexicans that they "are located next door to the worlds biggest illegal drug consumer."

Look's like we should be calling it the wild wild southwest from where i am at. To bad Mexico, this was your opportunity to show it's not as bad as the news makes it looks but once again your proved it is. I have been to Mexico 4 times in the past 12 month's and never had any issues just stay way from drugs and strippers and you'll be ok.

Why dump on a country for the actions of an extreme part of society. Historically, statistics show a foreigners visiting the US report more crimes against them per 100,000 foreigner visits than in any other country. I know these are only statistics, but people lving in glass houses... I travel to Mexico 10 -12 times a year on business and never feel unsafe. People generally know the problem areas stay away from them and have no problems. The reason Mexico has the drug related crime problem is because they are located next door to the worlds biggest illegal drug consumer. Don't blame Mexico for the problems largely created by the US. If you are actualy referring to your country of current residence by "this" and not Mexico why don't you do something to change it?
lou -not concerning,, just a country???  November 6, 2010 09:00 PM
