Factory FMF/KTM riders Russell Bobbitt and Charlie Mullins podium at the seventh round of the AMA National Enduro Series held in Moorestown, MI after battling through six special tests in the hot and humid weather.
Nick Fahringer claimed his first-ever national victory at the Jack Pine Enduro in Moorestown, Michigan, round seven of the Rekluse/AMA National Enduro Series.
Riding a 2012 Husaberg 300cc two-stroke for the first time in Enduro competition, Fahringer edged three-time series champ Russell Bobbitt for the win by a 10-second margin over the tight and demanding 70-mile, six-section course.
Bobbitt and FMF/KTM teammate, Charlie Mullins, who was also riding a two-stroke in Enduro competition for the first time, got off to quick starts, with Mullins winning the opening test while Bobbitt was fastest in the second. However, Fahringer made his move in test three, turning a time that was 29-seconds faster than Bobbitt and 51-seconds faster than Mullins.
FMF/KTM’s Cory Buttrick also switched to a two-stroke for the Jack Pine and came away with a fourth, while eight-time national champ Michael Lafferty made it five two-strokes in the top five by finishing fifth.
