Faces Of The Wade Farm Sprint Enduro

A look at the people who make the Wade Farm Sprint Enduro what it is

Josh Strang
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Josh Strang finished consistently in the top three in each of the tests all weekend. Combined with three test wins, Strang was able to put together a performance that led to his second victory of the season. “Both days went very well for me. I took the win for each day and earned valuable points in the series overall. It was dusty so I pushed hard on the straightaways to gain time and this put me on top of the podium for the round.”Shan Moore

The Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series held round 6 of its schedule this past weekend with the Wade Farm Sprint Enduro in Bedford, Indiana, where Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Josh Strang claimed his second victory of the season. Thad Duvall, the 2016 Sprint Enduro champ, finished second behind Strang, while Layne Michael rounded out the podium, making for an all-Husqvarna sweep of the podium. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the Wade Farm Sprint Enduro.

Thad Duvall
Thad Duvall made a surprise appearance at the Wade Farm Sprint Enduro in an effort to ride his way back into shape after suffering a wrist injury six weeks before. Duvall battled the entire first day through all tests with teammate Strang. He would finish the final three tests in first place, which set the stage for top-three finishes during the first tests on Sunday. Duvall managed a second-place finish overall despite getting stuck in the final test. “It felt great to be back on the bike. I had a blast and really enjoyed riding the FX 450, but I am excited to get back on my bike and get ready for the final half of my upcoming races.”Shan Moore

I was hovering around seventh and eighth most of the weekend.”Shan Moore
