#TBT – ISDE NEW ZEALAND 2006
The 2006 ISDE in New Zealand proved one for the record books for Team USA when the junior squad of Kurt Caselli, Ricky Dietrich, Russell Bobbitt and David Pearson brought home gold.
Up until then USA had sort of forgotten about the ISDE but that momentous victory sparked a real passion to succeed. Since then USA have grown stronger and stronger and last year in Italy they claimed their best result to date by placing as runner-up to France.
Unfortunately Kurt won’t be in Argentina next month to lead his men – this time they’ll have to do it on their own.
But that hunger to win has grown larger than ever and if they can – eight years on from New Zealand – add the World Trophy title to their junior crown the 89th edition of the ISDE will certainly go down in history as one to remember.
