KTM”s Mullins Victorious at Foggy Mountain National Enduro

For the sixth time this season, Factory FMF/KTM rider Charlie Mullins was victorious in the Rekluse/AMA National Enduro Series.
His latest win arrived at round seven – the Foggy Mountain National Enduro in Blain, Pa. – after a tight battle with veteran rider Mike Lafferty.
The day didn’t begin well for Mullins, who suffered a crash in the first test, placing him sixth overall. But he regained his rhythm in the second test, taking the lead time. Mullins continued this momentum, to take the final three tests. In the final one, Mullins came from a deficit to beat Husaberg’s Lafferty.
Charlie Mullins says: “I knew I had to have a great ride in the last section to hold on for the win. Luckily, I rode a mistake free test and came out the fastest by 5 seconds.”
Mullins time allowed him to take the win by 11 seconds over Lafferty who would finish in the runner-up position. Husaberg’s Nick Fahringer went on to finish in third position, followed by Yamaha’s Jesse Groemm and KTM support rider Grant Baylor.
Charlie Mullins says: “This was definitely a hard fought win. Mike always gives me a challenge at the rocky courses and this one was definitely a technical course. I am happy to pull out the win and continue to stretch my points lead prior to the summer break.”
The eighth round of the 2013 AMA National Enduro Series will get underway in Cross Fork, Pa., July 28, 2013.
