“I am excited for these riders to get the chance to go to France and represent our country,” said AMA off-road/ track assistant manager Michael Jolly. “We have a great group of riders. And I hope we can come home with the titles of overall club rider and overall Club Team. I also want to thank the motorcycle clubs and organizations for supporting these athletes.”

The teams represent a cross section of racers from across the country. Each Club Team is supported by companies and individuals who support the overall effort of the U.S. ISDE team and individual riders.

“The ISDE committee – composed of longtime ISDE racers and AMA staff members – organized the teams with the hope of earning every spot on the podium, along with providing the riders the best opportunity to work together, ride together and succeed together,” said AMA off-road racing manager Erek Kudla.

The Club Teams join the U.S. World Trophy Team, the U.S. Junior Trophy Team and the U.S. Women’s Trophy Team for the ISDE competition.
