created by Christy LaCurelle , 29.04.2013

West Point, TN – AirGroup Radiant Racing Husaberg rider Nick Fahringer and Factory Husaberg rider Russell Bobbitt finished 2nd and 3rd respectively at the fifth round of the Rekluse/AMA National Enduro Series.

Both riders have frequented the podium this season and once again found themselves battling each other throughout the six special test sections. Rain the night prior had left the course muddy in most sections. “The course was definitely challenging but quite fun,” commented Fahringer. “The first section was very slick and I struggled a bit.” That section would prove to be his worst as he went on to win the next two special tests to put his Husaberg in contention for the win.

 

Meanwhile, Bobbitt stepped up his game following the third test by taking the win in the fourth. He went on to finish third in the final two sections to secure the final podium position. Fahringer finished the last two sections in second place to secure the runner-up spot. “I felt really good today,” stated Fahringer. “My bike worked really well considering the conditions and I felt really strong in the final tests. I am really looking forward to the next round and hoping to get on the top step of the podium.”

 

Eight-time National Enduro Champion Mike Lafferty put together a decent ride to finish 5th. Lafferty turned scores inside the top five throughout the first five tests and was within the podium hunt. Unfortunately, he struggled in the final test section which placed him in 5th overall.

 

Five rounds into the series, Bobbitt remains second in the championship standings while Fahringer holds third and Lafferty fourth. The riders will now head into a long break before heading to the sixth round to be held in Marquette, MI on June 9, 2013.
