West Point, TN – Husaberg Factory riders Mike Lafferty and Nick Fahringer put together two solid performances to place both Husaberg’s inside the top five at the fourth round of the AMA National Enduro Series.

Lafferty finished five of the six special test sections inside the top five to keep him in the podium hunt throughout the race. He struggled in the second test session but made up for it in the remaining tests to claim the final step on the podium with a 3rd place result.

“It feels great to get on the podium again,” remarked Lafferty. “My bike is working amazing this year and I feel I am very competitive. I have been on the podium consistently this season but I am still looking for a win.”

Meanwhile his teammate Fahringer started off on a bad note crashing in the first test but picked up the pace following that section to come back and challenge for a top five spot. His best test was the fourth test where he earned the 4th fastest time. At the end of the day Fahringer was able to garner a 5th place result to move up in the series point standing.
