Traveline Assists Team USA to Kosice, Slovakia for ISDE 2015

Shannon Scott and Vicky DiMichele from Traveline assisted Team USA with their travel to Kosice, Slovakia. Team USA riders, support staff, friends and family joined in the group of well over 100 members.

The Traveline team arrived early to familiarize themselves with the area and make sure everything was prepared for the trophy team to arrive the following day. Throughout the first few days, most of the group members arrived and were met outside baggage claim by a friendly Traveline face. Then, once their car was picked up and they arrived at the hotel, another Traveline member was there to assist with any rooming questions.

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kosice was the selected hotel for our team along with a few other country teams including Isle of Man. It was in a prime location just outside of the historic district. Just a half a block away begins the walking street full of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and an array of other sights. The road is also home of the furthest east western-style Gothic cathedral in Europe, St. Elisabeth Cathedral, which is only five minutes walking distance from the hotel and the park with a musical fountain. Košice State Theater is just beyond the fountain with amazing events from ballet to orchestras. Don’t forget to stop by a gelatto stand for some interesting flavors such as Red Bull, Smurf or aloe vera along with the traditional strawberry, chocolate and vanilla.

Team USA arrived about a week before the event to set up their bikes and walk the tracks where they would be riding for six days throughout the countryside. Preparations went very smooth and most of the riders were done early so they could enjoy some of the sights of the city. The paddock was also where our Traveline girls helped sell Team USA shirts to the many event visitors.

By the end of the week, Team USA was well prepared and hopeful for a great ISDE event. As usual, there was a big parade of all the participating teams which went through the city center to a large stage in the center of the historic district.

After the short weekend, the races began and Team USA was off to a great start with riders placing first in many of the events and trails.

Throughout the week, there were many ups and downs with Team USA from the fastest times to the inevitable injuries. Overall, the races went well. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing supported rider, Ryan Sipes, became the first-ever American to win the Overall Individual award at the ninetieth edition of the International Six Days of Enduro in Kosice, Slovakia. Sipes pioneered his way to a historical victory aboard a Husqvarna FE 350 by winning most of the tests against the world’s top riders in the globe’s toughest competition. Full Article

After the races finished, it was time to pack up the bikes and get them shipped back to the USA. Then it was time for celebrations. The team had an enjoyable evening out and many decided to join a UNESCO Heritage Tour in the Spiš region with the Traveline team.

The tour included Spiš castle, a lunch break at Salaš (a chalet restaurant offering typical Slovak dishes and homemade sheep cheese products) located below the castle in Levoča and a tour of St. Jacobs cathedral in Levoča. They were transferred by private coach and escorted by two English speaking guides.

The group finally made their leave from this beautiful country on Monday for preparations on their next event or just back to life as usual.

Traveline is honored to assist with Team USA and look forward to next year in Navarra, Spain!

Trips of a Lifetime

Dream Big. We’ll Make it Happen.

Imagine skirting the shores of otherworldly islands populated with seldom-seen creatures. Or sleeping in an Indian palace once owned by the richest man in the world. Then again, your idea of nirvana might be dining under the stars in Morocco, snorkeling in Tahiti’s turquoise lagoons or riding a camel in Lawrence of Arabia’s Wadi Rum. You may only be gone a week or two, but the time spent fulfilling those travel dreams will live on — in photos, fond memories and gained insights — for many years to come.
