The World Enduro Championship crossed the Atlantic for the first time in 2006, with rounds in the USA and Canada added to those spread across Europe from southern Spain, north to Sweden and Slovakia in the East. Could the North American riders use their 'homefield advantage' to beat the best from Europe, Australia and New Zealand? The answers are here in this detailed coverage of the 2006 season. David Knight from the Isle of Man repeated his 2005 victory in the big-bike category while Finland's Samuli Aro and Ivan Cervantes from Spain also held on to the Championships that they won last year in the lightweight and middleweight classes. They were all KTM-mounted but there was plenty of opposition for the Austrian company from Yamaha, Honda and Husqvarna. It was a great year of international action amidst spectacular back-country scenery.
