The back bone of this year’s FIM ISDE in Chile, one-hundred and six Club team have battled their way through four tough and demanding days of competition.

But for so many, the FIM ISDE is a bucket list race that offers a greater story to tell and for Destry Abbott (USA) that is certainly the case.

After battling through a long term illness, the multi-time American Off-Road Champion, and former United States FIM World Trophy team rider, is competing in his first FIM ISDE since his recovery, alongside son Cooper.

Despite strong performances during the two opening days, Abbott crashed out on day three, but in true Enduro spirit is determined to help his son reach the finish line.

“I’m gutted to see my ISDE end like this,” told a disappointed Abbott. “I had an awkward crash, landing heavy on my head and back.”

“I managed to continue for another hour, but the pain was too much. Now my goal is to help where I can and see my son reach the finish line.”
