Cycle News Staff | December 4, 2012

Husaberg recently announced that Mike Lafferty will return to its off-road team in 2013 and will compete alongside new teammate Russell Bobbitt. Between the two riders, they own 12 AMA National Enduro Championships, eight for Lafferty and four for Bobbitt.

Lafferty will again go after a record nine enduro titles in 2013. In 2012, Lafferty finished second in the championship, which was his best finish since joining Husaberg three years ago.

Bobbitt, a long-time KTM rider, moves over to the Husaberg team and will compete in both the AMA National Enduro Championship and OMA Championships.

Nick Fahringer who rode for the factory Husaberg team in 2012 will again ride Husaberg machinery but for Air Group Racing, a satellite team out of Nebraska.
