8th Annual Leroy Winters Memorial ISDT Reunion Ride

Oct 22 - 24, 2004 - Zink Ranch - Tulsa, Oklahoma USA


ISDT.org goes International, well at least North American.

Thanks to the efforts of Helmut "Speedy" Clasen, I have included Canadian riders on the ISDT.org web page.  So, this page is now about American and Canadian efforts in the ISDT up to 1981 when the name was changed to International Six Days Enduro (ISDE).  1980 is a bit new for my tastes, but the name change makes a good place to stop.  Hey, I'm an old guy who like old bikes.  I've started with 1949 because that was the first year an American (Tommy McDermott) won a Gold Medal in ISDT.
