Monday was the first day of the FIM International Six Days Enduro, and as expected Team USA quickly established themselves as contenders. The Yanks took top honors in the World Trophy Division, and Kailub Russell was the top rider overall. Australia and France are close behind, though, and this is only the first of six days of racing, so anything can happen. 

Tuesday's racing just completed, you can go here to find live results. The World Trophy riders compete in three classes—E1, E2, E3—and you can find Tuesday's results and the combined Monday/Tuesday class results (called progressive) there. We're still waiting on team results for the day—stay tuned for more. 

UPDATE 9/8 2 p.m. EST: The World Team Trophy results have been calculated and Australia has moved ahead of Team USA into the lead after day two. Daniel Milner, who races the Amsoil Grand National Cross Country Series here for Am-Pro N-Fab Yamaha, led the team with Tuesday's lowest individual time. Milner and Americans Ryan Sipes and Kailub Russell are dueling for individual overall honors at the moment. As for the teams, Australia's lead is just over eight seconds so it's close, and this could be a barn-burner all week long. Australia, like the U.S., has never won the World Team Trophy.
