Husaberg's Nick Fahringer Places 6th At Forest Hill National Enduro - Dirt Rider Magazine Online

Forest Hill, LA - Husaberg backed Nick Fahringer earned a remarkable 6th place finish at the third round of the AMA National Enduro Series after overcoming tough conditions.The first half of the race went well as Fahringer was sitting in 4th place at the halfway point. "I was really excited to do so well in the first few tests. My Husaberg FE450e was running perfect and I was finally feeling 100% and ready to finish the race strong," reported Fahringer.Once he started the 4th special test Fahringer realized there was debris lodged in his fork leg that had started to cause the fork leg to leak. The oil soon fell onto his braking system and his brakes gave out. "I was forced to ride the last half of the event with unbalanced forks and no brakes. I managed to finish the race better than I expected given the circumstances," stated Fahringer. Despite his misfortune, the talented Husaberg rider stayed inside the top ten and finished a respectable 6th place overall. "Considering the conditions, I am happy to take home some points today and I look forward to breaking into the top five at the next event," commented Fahringer.
