Fahringer earns First US National Win on Husaberg

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

HILL CITY, Minn. – Husaberg rider Nick Fahringer earned his first career National win and first win aboard his Husaberg FX450 at the 7th round of the AMA Racing East National Hare Scrambles Championship Series.

Rain the night before had made the course quite damp in the morning but nice weather on race day made for almost perfect conditions throughout the duration of the 77 mile endurance race.

Fahringer had a mediocre start but made up for it in the first few turns passing multiple people to head into the woods in 4th place. Quickly into the first lap Fahringer had moved up to 2nd place behind Paul Whibley. On the second lap he had matched the pace set by Whibley and began to settle into a solid race pace. Near the end of the two lap mark Whibley lost a chain and DNF’d the race. Fahringer inherited the lead and never looked back.

Fahringer went on to win the event by 5 minutes and 1 second over Jason Greer. On top of Fahringer’s first win, two other Husaberg riders, Dylan Debel and Austin Wells also finished inside the top five to mark the first time three of the top five riders have been aboard Husaberg motorcycles.

“It feels really good to win here today and get my first win on the Husaberg. I am definitely improving as the season continues and feel I am riding at the best I have in my career,” commented Fahringer.

Husaberg Race Report – WORCS Round 8

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

OLYMPIA, Wash. – Husaberg Factory rider Nathan Woods arrived at the 8th round of the WORCS with confidence high after two solid finishes at the previous rounds but bad luck and bad weather would put a damper on his result at the conclusion of the Washington WORCS Week event.

Rain the night before had made for a very muddy and slippery course. Woods spun off the line at the start of the event which caused him to come around the first corner mid-pack. He had moved up to 6th place as he weaved about through the tight trees in the woods section but came to a halt moments after when frontrunner Destry Abbott crashed in mid-trail. Abbott created a bottleneck in the trail that caused all but three riders to stop in their tracks until he picked up his bike and moved aside so the others could get around on the narrow single track.

Abbott pulled out in front of Woods after his crash and the two riders battled until Abbott once again went down, this time taking Woods with him. When Woods recovered from this crash he was sitting in 12th and was again pushing to catch back up.

On the second lap Woods stopped in the pits for goggles and was sitting in about 10th position. He continued to charge forward and was sitting in 9th on the tail of 8th place with two laps to go. Unfortunately just as he was moving around 8th he crashed once more and hit the ground elbow first. Woods pulled back into the pits to examine his elbow. After a few minutes he decided he wanted to push through and finish the event. One lap down, he re-entered the course and went on to finish a disappointing but hard earned 13th overall.

Woods will spend the next few weeks recovering his elbow and come out swinging at the next round at Glen Helen Raceway on September 19th. “I am bummed that I had such a bad result at this race. But I am ready for Glen Helen. It is terrain that I am used to and terrain that favours large displacement motorcycles which should be perfect for my Husaberg,” commented Woods.

Refine your riding skills with a HART course for a chance to win a MOTOGP ticket

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Australia: One of the philosophies that sets Honda Australia Rider Training (HART) apart from other teaching organisations is their focus on improving rider’s skills throughout their motorcycling life.

By offering post licence courses including Refresher, Intermediate and Advanced, HART is able to assist riders to stay safe on the road, regardless of how many years experience they may or may not have.

Now anyone who completes a HART post licence training course at Somerton between now and September 30, 2010 has the chance to win a 3 day general admission ticket to the Australian MotoGP, October 15 – 17, 2010 valued at $150. There are three passes in total to be given away.

All courses address practical motorcycling skills such as straight line braking, corner braking, counter steering or swerving, throttle control and slow speed riding.

For those who have been away from bikes for a few months or maybe even years, it takes time and practice to feel comfortable and confident once you get back on a motorcycle. HART’s Refresher course focuses on roadcraft sessions and defensive skill development such as dealing with unexpected situations, emergency braking and lane positioning.

For those who already ride and want to move onto a larger capacity motorcycle, the Intermediate course offers additional components such as the slalom course which aims to improve cornering lines, eye direction and riding posture.

The Advanced I course is structured to enhance and refine the skills of a licensed rider who is confident and continually practising their riding skills. It is a full day course held at an off site venue.
