Channdlersville, OH (August 26, 2018) – FAR Racing Gas Gas North America’s Andrew DeLong turned in a solid 10th place finish on his GasGas XC300 at this weekend’s Grassman National Enduro in Chandlersville, Ohio.
 
Building on the fifth place finish he turned in at the previous round in Pennsylvania, DeLong came into the Ohio race with high expectations. However, rain on the morning of the race left the course extremely slick and treacherous, and the Pennsylvania rider struggled to find a rhythm.
 
Andrew DeLong: After my fifth place finish at the last round, I’m a bit disappointed in this weekend’s performance. We’ve made good progress with the bike and it feels great, but I just struggled with the conditions. It was slick and there were a lot of roots and off-cambers and I just didn’t feel comfortable. The course didn’t flow like it usually does and I just couldn’t get in sync with the trail. The bike is totally dialed in and I’m very pleased with the performance. I just need to get in more time on it before the next round in Michigan.
 
The FAR Racing Gas Gas North America team returns to action on September 9th for the Loose Moose National Enduro in Marquette, Michigan, round eight of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series.
