For the fourth year in a row a Trail Jesters supported rider will compete in the FIM International Six Days of Enduro. Trail Jesters Athlete Josh Toth has been selected by the American Motorcyclist Association to race as a member of the Junior World Trophy team that will represent the United States in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France, this August. The ISDE is the annual FIM Enduro World Championship for national teams and is considered to be the Olympics of motorcycling. 

"We have been going after the goal of getting a jester selected on a US trophy team since our very first ISDE planning meeting in my garage back in February of 2014." said Ross Mauri the Founder of Trail Jesters. "Josh was only 16 years old then but his talent and drive were undeniable and so we set our sights high! We're so stoked for Josh." 

The ISDE is the most prestigious and largest annual off-road motorcycle race in the world. The ISDE is hosted each year in a different country and began in 1913. 19-year-old Toth is one of three riders under the age of 23 that make up the US Junior World team. This will be Toth's third ISDE appearance and he is well prepared to go after the FIM ISDE Junior World Trophy championship on his AmPro Factory Yamaha YZ250FX. 

"I am beyond excited to head to France in August and represent the USA. It is a great opportunity and I am so proud to be going to the six days again. I have been working so hard, proving myself with results on the track and I believe I am prepared to do well with this team. Our goal as the Junior World Trophy Team is to bring an FIM championship trophy back home for the USA," said Josh Toth. 

The 92nd edition of the FIM ISDE begins August 28 and ends September 2nd. 

Notable Quotes: 

Steve Hatch (Led US win of 1991 ISDE Junior World Trophy) -- "Josh has a lot of talent when it comes to speed on a dirt bike. Even though he has natural talent, he's worked hard in his offseason to get the strength and endurance to make the race the easiest part of his week, which has made him one of the fastest riders on US soil in 2017!" 

Billy Burns (4 time ISDE veteran) -- "I couldn't be more proud to see Josh get his chance to represent all of New England on the 2017 US Junior World Team! GO JOSH!!"
