The International Six Days Enduro is the pinnacle of international off-road motorcycle sport.
Witley MCC members have been competing successfully in "The Olympics of Motorcycling" for well over 20 years.
Even before this time, Club riders took part in the International Six Days Trial in the 1960s and 1970s.
The ISDE is the oldest competition in the off-road motorcycle calendar and now, in its 96th year, the ‘Olympics of Motorcycling’ is still, at its core, a tough endurance event.

We are pleased to announce that all our Witley team completed the event despite some quite serious setbacks.
They brought Witley MCC to 41st place out of the 128 club teams entered from across the world – and we are very proud of them!
Great work by Simon (216), Guy (147) and Josh (114), by Elliot, and by all the Witley support crew who took time out to travel to France.
Meanwhile, in the Trophy competition, Great Britain had their best result ever, with the men and women both taking their respective World Trophy against strong opposition, and the junior team taking 4th spot.
