Mike Lafferty scores the first National win for Husaberg

March 19th, 2010

Mike Lafferty scores the first National win for Husaberg in the U.S.

Daytona Beach, FL – Husaberg Factory rider Mike Lafferty finished 1st at the third round of the National Enduro Series earning his first win of the season and the first U.S. National win for the Husaberg brand. Fellow Husaberg rider Nick Fahringer finished 3rd to round out the podium.

Lafferty had a slow start to the day, falling twice in the first section and getting stuck behind a few slower riders in the third test section. “I was down 30 seconds after the first three tests and knew I was going to have to put in a tremendous ride at the end to catch the leaders,” remarked Lafferty.

The fourth test, which was the most talked about of the day, was where the race was won for Lafferty. “The fourth test was all mud, and I just went right down the middle of it. In the end, just charging up the middle was a better line than staying to the outside because it wasn’t as deep and I was able to make up a lot of time.”

Lafferty finished 30 seconds up on Bobbitt in the fourth test and the two riders went into the final test tied for the lead. The fifth test was the longest of the day and was filled with thick brush and palm leaves. “The final test was brutal but I was able to make up the time I needed and put my Husaberg on the top of the podium. It feels great to get my first win of the season and the first National win for Husaberg.”

Fahringer also raced his best round of the season, tying for the fastest overall time in the third test and eventually finishing in 3rd place for the day. “I have been practicing in Florida the past two weeks and all of my sand riding paid off. I felt really comfortable today and am happy to finish on the box.”

Overall Results –

1) Mike Lafferty – Husaberg

2) Russell Bobbitt

3) Nick Fahringer – Husaberg

4) Brad Bakken

5) Wally Palmer
