Husaberg Rider Nick Fahringer Earns First Podium

Marquette, MI – Husaberg Factory rider Nick Fahringer earned his first podium finish of the season at the ninth round of the AMA National Enduro Series.

“I’ve been working hard toward a podium finish all season and I am happy to finally get on the box,” commented Fahringer. “Russell (Bobbitt) and Mike (Lafferty) are going pretty good right now, but I would love to get up in the mix at the final round.”

The Michigan course was comprised of six special tests which ranged from sandy and leafy to rocky and slippery. Rain drizzled on the trails throughout the majority of the event adding to the difficulty of the course.

Fahringer rode a strong consistent race finishing 3rd in all six tests which led to his 3rd overall reward at the end of the race. “I rode the Husaberg FE450 for this event and it worked perfect all day long. We had no problems, the ride was really smooth and it felt good to walk away with a podium finish.”
