Fahringer Earns 4th at the West Point National Enduro

West Point, TN – Factory Husaberg rider Nick Fahringer earned his highest finish of the season this weekend when he earned 4th overall at the fifth round of the AMA National Enduro Series.

“I’ve always been somewhat of a slow starter so my first few special test times weren’t great but as the day continued I improved and finished 3rd fastest in a couple of the sections,” commented Fahringer.

Fahringer described the course as a mix of everything. “There were fast sections, rocky sections, up hills and down hills, clay sections and creek beds. It was definitely the most diverse and most fun race of the season.” He continued, “I was having so much fun on the final test that I rode into the check point doing a stoppie only to realize that another rider had come to a dead stop right after the check. I couldn’t stop soon enough and I rammed into the back of him. I guess I am always the one to put on a good show.”

Husaberg support rider Rory Sullivan put in a good ride at the West Point Enduro. He finished 10th overall for the day and currently sits 10th overall in points.

After five rounds, Fahringer remains 5th in points only 7 points behind Jason Raines. “I am looking to finish on the podium this season and hope that I can do that as the series heads out west for the next round.”
