Great Britain ISDE Teams Announced
Great Britain has announced their line-up of riders who will compete at this year’s ISDE in Sardinia.
Representing Great Britain in the World Trophy team competition – David Knight will be joined by Tom Sagar, Jamie Lewis, Jordan Rose, Jason Thomas and Daryl Bolter.
Fielding quite possibly one of the strongest Junior World Trophy teams, the four-man squad will consist of Danny McCanney, Jamie McCanney, Jack Rowland and Steve Holcombe.
Intent on building on their success of the past two years, the Junior World Trophy team should start as one of this year’s favourites for top honours. Featuring Danny McCanney, Rowland and Holcombe, who all placed as runner-up in Germany 2012, the team has grown in strength with the addition of newly crowned Enduro Youth Cup World Champion Jamie McCanney to the line up.

Commenting on the Junior selection team manager Andrew Martin remarked…
“Our Junior team will be looking to go one step better this year after finishing second last year. The only change to the team being Jamie McCanney stepping into the Junior team and replacing Alex Rockwell.
“The Junior team features the strong pairing of Danny and Jamie McCanney who have both claimed World Championships this year. Steve Holcombe although injured at the beginning of this year has come back stronger and faster and Jack Rowland who is currently leading his class in the FIME Enduro Championships.”
Hoping to build on their eighth place result of 2012, the World Trophy team will benefit from the addition of Knight to the squad. Unable to participate last year due to injury, Knight will be hoping to end his season on a high and put behind him a year plagued with injury.
“The Trophy team is world class,” continued Martin. “David Knight is a three-time World Champion, Jason Thomas who is producing great results in the American GNCC, Tom Sagar a former British and European Champion and EWC podium finisher. Jordan Rose and Daryl Bolter are both former top-level EWC competitors and newcomer to the team Jamie Lewis is currently performing well in the FIME Enduro Championships. Each of our riders has an enviable record of talent and experience.”
