The 97th edition of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) continues its set-up and will take place as scheduled from 6 to 11 November in the province of San Juan, Argentina.

Already with more than 300 riders contesting Club Team Awards (CTAs) with a strong participation of South American competitors, and also expecting a large number of national teams, this legendary annual team competition will visit the country for the second time in its history, after its first and successful time in 2014.

The FIM ISDE Argentina 2023 promises to be an unforgettable experience for both riders and enduro fans. The organising committee continues working diligently to finalise details. Only four months away from the competition, David Eli, Director of +Eventos and local organiser of the FIM ISDE 2023, commented on this great upcoming event: “We are very excited to organise the Six Days again in our country. San Juan has a great variety of terrains that will allow for a formidable competition. And although it is true that in the last few hours the Secretary of Sports of San Juan, Jorge Chica, informed me that the governmental support of the province will be restricted, we can still carry out the event thanks to the support of our sponsors and our business structure that allows us to give guarantees in this sense. So I look forward to welcoming all the teams coming to our country soon”.

The countdown to the return of the FIM International Six Days of Enduro 2023 to South America after five years has already begun. With planning underway, the local organiser is looking forward to welcoming riders and teams from around the world with the opening of the paddock at the Villicum Circuit in San Juan scheduled for 31 October and the inaugural parade of nations to be held on Saturday, 4 November this year.COISDE Communication

This is the third annual occasion recognising and applauding the Sustainability Week within the FIM. A week dedicated to celebrating the efforts that the members of this great organisation make time after time and that this year will be held from 5 to 11 June.

Over recent times, we have welcomed a community increasingly involved in achieving the Agenda 2030. We have seen a large number of fans concerned about current critical issues, who are looking for conscious and committed entertainment.

In motorcycle sport, tourism and mobility we have made progress in fundamental areas such as education, inclusion and energy transition whilst taking advantage of the technological potential for phasing out fossil fuels. We have also worked on the reduction of the sound level, plus we have received with great enthusiasm the ambitious sustainability strategies from our promoters who have also spared no effort in the certification of our championships.

This year we are both pleased and proud to present our first ever Sustainability Report which will be presented during these celebrations.

Other relevant activities that we will celebrate are : 10 years of the KiSS Programme, which has the central objective to focus on the design and implementation of sustainable events; The sustainable enduro school for children in Portugal; the celebration of the World Environment Day, promoted by UNEP, which the FIM has supported since 2006 as well as other projects that will be added to all the activities and that will be announced throughout the week.

The motto of our 2023 campaign is “Join us to build a better future” – this is dedicated with great respect to the guild of engineers and mechanics who work every day in all sectors of our organisation and who have a predominant role in achieving our objectives.

As with every year, I convey a cordial invitation to all members of this great FIM family, our Continental Unions, Promoters, National Federations, Riders, Journalists, and Organisers to join the permanent efforts to preserve our environment, contribute to local communities, support global objectives and also to join in the celebrations of this great FIM Sustainability Week.

To mark International Women’s Day this coming Wednesday 8 March, the FIM has released a documentary entitled Women in Motorcycling.

Produced in conjunction with online broadcasting specialists WebsEdge, the FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission (CFM) has partnered with Can-Am, BMW Motorrad and MUNER University for this very special project with the aim of raising the profile of female motorcycle sport and inspiring the next generation of riders.

Featuring interviews with iconic female competitors, the twenty-two-minute film shares the inspirational stories of FIM World Champions Laia Sanz, Iris Kramer and Kiara Fontanesi along with trail-blazing road racer Andrea Coleman and up-and-coming prospect Ran Yochay.

A celebration of female motorcycle sport, Women in Motorcycling showcases three key areas in the motorcycle industry from on the road to engineering and racing.

“As soon as you put on the helmet it doesn’t matter what your gender is,” explains nineteen-year-old racer Ran Yochay. “What matters is our love for the sport and what matters is how we ride. If you’re good, you’re good – it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman.”

Janika Judeika, FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission Director: The FIM is devoted to making motorcycling an open, inclusive and benevolent environment for all. That is why the Women in Motorcycling Commission continuously seeks ways to showcase role models who can inspire more and more women to not only join our sport, but also strive in it, no matter which path or discipline they choose. Joining forces with WebsEdge, BMW Motorrad, Can-Am, and MUNER University was a great opportunity to deliver our message to a wider audience and show girls and women everywhere that they are strong, capable, unstoppable and, most of all, supported by an extraordinary community of people!”

Stephen Horn, CEO, WebsEdge:“We were delighted to partner with the FIM to produce a film that explores the challenges and achievements of women in motorcycling. This is a ground-breaking and unique point of view of women in the industry who have made a difference. As a company we feel strongly about advancing gender equality and breaking barriers, we know the most powerful way of doing that is to share knowledge and experiences through storytelling.”

Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad: “Women are a strong part of our BMW Motorrad community. We have more and more female participants in track days and it is great that their interest in being actively involved in motorsport is also rising. As BMW Motorrad, we support them with many activities. The FIM commitment to support women in motorsports is fantastic and it has high importance for us to be a part of it. Our common goal is to interest even more girls and women for bikes and for racing and to assist them on their way into motorsports. We are excited about a future with more and more female racers competing in the different levels and disciplines of racing.” – Watch the BMW Movie Click HERE

Francesco Leali, MUNER professor and Advanced Automotive Engineering Program Director: “MUNER is promoting the value of diversity, with the belief that being able to attract more and more talented young women is not only a matter of equality, but it is a requirement to enhance the overall quality of the world of motorsport. For years we have been carrying out activities that aim to encourage women’s empowerment through, among others, creating a valuable network at both the national and international levels.
The collaboration with FIM on the Women in Motorcycle project makes us proud and confident towards a richer and fairer future.” – Watch MUNER movie Click HERE

Martin Ethier, Can-Am Marketing Director: “Can-Am is extremely proud to once again be a corporate partner of the International Female Ride Day for 2023 and support this global movement. With the largest female presence of any powersports manufacturer and programs like Women of On-Road Can-Am is committed to breaking down barriers and opening the open road to all. We look forward to celebrating this amazing event and empowering the next generation of female riders.” – Watch CanAM Movie Click HERE
