RecoveR8 Team Australia Extends Lead After Day Two At The 2019 ISDE Portugal!
With day two concluding, RecoveR8 Team Australia achieved a second victory over team USA, winning by thirty seconds and extending their overall ISDE lead to fifty seconds. The two nations now pull over five minutes ahead of Italy in third place, establishing what appears to be a two Nation battle for the 2019 ISDE crown. Day two would see Daniel Sanders again reign supreme as he took the Outright win and the E3 class win by winning six of the seven tests, dominating the days proceedings. Josh Green would match day ones performance by finishing in sixth position in E2, just two seconds behind USA’s Grant Baylor. Matthew Philips would again finish ninth in E2, showing how consistency pays off for the team in the Outright standings from the E2 duo’s performances. Luke Styke would finish the day a solid second in E1 and fifth outright, helping to further extend the Team’s lead times in the ISDE World Trophy.
Luke Styke commented to MA on the first two days action:
“We made a few changes halfway through the day and it seemed like they were the right ones as I picked up some pace through the second half of the day. The trails and the tests themselves were getting brutal with two days on the same layout. Overall I’m happy with the day and plan to stay smart and consistent to keep doing my job for the Australian Team”
“It’s great to see some of our Junior Team in the top ten and we have put a lot of time on the other teams. I ended up seventh outright yesterday which was honestly hard to believe for me, but I feel smooth and believe I can keep this up for the rest of the week”.
