ISDE 2017 Team Sweden | Day 1

August 29, 2017

by Gjermund Frostad

Day 1 of the ISDE France saw sweltering temperatures reaching over 35°C and it put all of the riders to the test. This years event has 650 riders listed to compete. Sweden’s team has 10 riders, with 7 of them as part of the FXR squad. We are pleased with our representation in France and we know Sweden will be a force to be reckoned with based on their performance last year in Spain.

After Day 1, Husqvarna rider Albin Elowson is the top FXR rider with 10th place overall and the best Junior Trophy rider overall. The Junior team had a good day and is currently leading the Junior class. FXR athletes, Albin Elowson and Mikael Persson represent 2 of the 3 Junior Trophy team.
