Bennetts Insurance announce trailblazing partnership with ISDE Team GB

Bennetts are pleased to announce the beginning of a developing partnership withISDE Team GB.

With Team GB having experienced two years of success in a row at the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE), there is no better time to be venturing into the world of enduro. Notably, in 2022, both the Men’s and Women’s Trophy Teams were crowned champions at the 96th edition of the event in France. 

The ISDE event is often regarded as the "Olympics of Motorcycling" and is the oldest and most prestigious off-road motorcycling event in the world.
Bennetts are sponsoring a number of fundraising practice events, starting with SETRA MCC’s fan-favourite event at Knook, Warminster on 30th March, and the Saintswell MX and Enduro Centre in mid-June, featuring a ‘Train with Team GB’ day and an open practice day. The Bennetts team will be present at these events, so do come and say hi.
With the UK also hosting three world championship events in 2024, it is a momentous year for the sport and sets the scene for Team GB to claim back the ISDE trophies at this year’s edition in Silleda, Spain from 14-19th October.


Jamie Lewis – ISDE Team GB Team Manager:“We are really excited to be partnering with Bennetts, they are a very well-known company in the motorcycling world and we are happy to be helping them venture more into the off-road motorsport market. We are grateful that they are supporting Team GB and getting involved with our practice days and more this year! This is just the beginning of a strong partnership, and we are looking forward to the year ahead.”
Chris Newble – Brand, PR and Events Manager, Bennetts:“Our team are extremely passionate about this new partnership and we’re delighted we can support the Team on their quest to win gold in Spain later this year. We are excited for Team GB to be joining us at various events, and look forward to them sharing their stories and achievements with our customers.”  

About ISDE Team GB

The International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) is the oldest and most prestigious off-road motorcycling event in the world. The event was first held in 1913 and takes place annually – apart from interruptions during the two world wars. 

The competition was held primarily on roads in its early years – although the roads of the era were often just as challenging as today’s trails – and were designed to test both the reliability of machines and the skills of riders. Today’s ISDE is primarily an off-road event that traverses some of the world’s most challenging terrain.
History was made when Team GB triumphed at the ISDE in Le Puy-En-Velay, France in 2022. British riders have made many podium appearances over the years, but the Men's Trophy Team clinched the overall victory after an incredible 69-year hiatus, while the Women's Trophy Team secured their first-ever victory since the women’s team category was introduced in 2007.
The ISDE in San Juan, Argentina will likely go down in history as one of the hardest races ever, due to the searing temperatures. Battling through the heat, dust and stones, Team GB’s Men’s Trophy Team achieved another podium finish in November 2023 in third place.
