KTM’s David Lykke (pictured) and Throttlehead.com/Kawasaki Team Green’s Steve Hatch battled to the finish at the third round of the AMA FMF National Enduro Series in Greensboro, Georgia, yesterday, and when all was said and done, the tie-breakers were used to determine a winner. Both riders dropped 17 points, but Lykke came out ahead on the seconds. It is Lykke’s second win of the young series.

Third place went to Kawasaki Team Green’s Chuck Woodford, followed by Am-Pro Yamaha’s Randy Hawkins and Gas Gas-mounted Russell Bobbitt.

Barry Hawk Jr., Fred Hoess, Robbie Jenks, Nolan Knight and Trey Wellborn rounded out the top 10 overall. In the series point standings, Lykke is on top with 81 points, followed by Hatch with 62 and Hawkins with 61.
