THE WEEKLY FEED: MIKE LAFFERTY BITD • SOCIAL POKES • THE TOUGHEST HILL CLIMBS

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Mike Lafferty

Mike Lafferty will go down in U.S. off-road history as one of the greatest racers in our world. ‘Junior’ won eight National Enduro titles in a career that started on the national level in 1993. He amassed 69 wins, which he shares with Dick Burleson, another 8-time National Champion. All of Mike’s National enduro titles came while racing for KTM, though he did switch hats and rode for their sister company Husaberg in 2009 and 2010. Today Mike works with KTM riding and promoting Adventure events and he still races…for fun.
