Fahringer Earns 2nd at Final National Enduro


Maplesville, AL – Husaberg Factory rider Nick Fahringer finished 2nd overall at the final round of the AMA National Enduro Series after putting together a remarkable season ending ride. His teammate, Mike Lafferty, finished 4th overall.


Fahringer suffered from arm pump in the first test but quickly recovered and set to work from the second test on. He took the win at the third and sixth test which helped quickly move him through the pack. At the end of six tests he was able to climb into 2nd position and finish on the podium.


His teammate, Mike Lafferty, rode strong throughout the first half of the race and was battling with the lead ride of Russell Bobbitt. Unfortunately, Lafferty had a few bobbles in later sections that cost him valuable time. In the final section he was in a tight battle with Fahringer and Brad Bakken for the 2nd position but came up just short of the fast time. His time in the sixth test pushed him back to 4th overall.


“I am disappointed in my overall performance today,” commented Lafferty. “I wish that I could have been on the podium. Despite my finish today, I am happy with my overall result in the series and glad that I could finish 2nd in the point standings.”
