About the ISDE
First held in England in 1913, the ISDE has been held every year in various parts of the world - with the exception of during the two World Wars. Portugal was the host country in 2009, Greece in 2008 and in Chile in 2007. The event attracts around 500 riders and thousands of spectators. Riders compete for individual and multiple categories of national and other team awards over six days of riding a total 1250 miles (2011 km). And because KTM highly values the commitment of privateers and IDSE enthusiasts there will again in 2010 be an unofficial tribute to KTM's toughest club riders.
