Snow Shoe, WV – Husaberg Factory rider Nick Fahringer earned a top five finish at the Snow Shoe GNCC after coming through the pack after a first corner crash to finish 4th in the GNCC XC1 class.
Fahringer, fresh off a podium finish at the Inyan Kara National Enduro last weekend, started from the fifth row at the Snow Shoe GNCC. He launched out front quickly, but high-sided on the pavement in the first corner and lost some ground. He was able to pass a few riders on the first lap to stay within the top ten and he moved into 6th overall after the second lap.
Fahringer continued to plug-away throughout the three-hour race and was able to move up two more positions to hold down 4th position. He turned up the gas on the final lap and gapped the 5th place rider by a total of 44 seconds.
“I love going to this event. It is different than the rest and really fun to ride. I made a few mistakes early on today but I felt like a finished strong. I am happy with a top five finish and hope to hit a few more GNCC events before the end of the year,” remarked Fahringer.
