LAKE HAVASU, Ariz. - Husaberg Factory rider Nathan Woods is returning to his true form after having his best showing yet at the third round of the WORCS at the Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu, Arizona.

Woods started the race well in 3rd position. He held that position for the first lap before dropping into 5th. Woods settled into 5th position maintaining that spot for the first half of the race running consistent lap times with the lead riders.

Just before the gas stop near the halfway mark of the race, Woods crashed in the off-road section and lost time as he had to drag his Husaberg out of the thick bushes. He stopped in the pits to make sure his bike was intact and went back to pounding laps. He charged hard the final half of the race and was able to move himself back into the top ten to finish a hard fought 9th overall.

"I felt really strong today and feel like I could have finished within the top five had things gone my way. Unfortunately, my crash before the pit stop set me back but it was good to know that I am finally back up to speed and in contention for some top five finishes," remarked Woods.
