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.

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.”
