Mike Lafferty wins Alligator Enduro
March 15, 2013
Husaberg Factory rider Mike Lafferty took the win at the 63rd running of the Alligator Enduro held during Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Lafferty was the man to beat from the conclusion of the first test which he won in a dominating fashion. He continued to stretch his lead through each of the five special tests to eventually take the win over fellow Husaberg rider Nick Fahringer.
Fahringer, had a great day, finishing second in each special test and tying Lafferty in the final test where both rider’s finished on their minute to zero out the test. Meanwhile, Husaberg Factory rider Russell Bobbitt, struggled throughout the race fighting off a stomach bug while also trying to make up time lost in the second test section after he got turned around on the course and lost precious time trying to find the correct path to finish the test.
“I am really excited to take the win here today,” commented Lafferty. “I always enjoy coming to this race and running in the deep sand. Today’s track was pretty fun in some sections and I am glad to walk away with the win and am looking forward to returning to the AMA National Enduro Series in two weeks.”
