Mike Lafferty Race Report Rnd. #5
Slippery mud and extremely tight, over grown trails couldn?t stop Mike Lafferty from scoring his third win of the season, in dominating fashion on his trusty KTM 450exc.
A 10-mile road ride to the first section would end up being the most fun that the riders had all day, because as soon as they turned into the woods for the start of the first section, jungle like conditions was what most riders described. A 13-mile section with virgin tight woods and established trails took its toll on many riders as Lafferty lead the way, with 9 points.
The next section was 7-miles of flooded creeks and low lands, Lafferty once again was the quickest scoring a 5 along with Jenks.
12 more miles of jungle and hills was next, spreading the competitors out substantially as Lafferty came through with a 10, Hawkins 12 and Jenks 16.
For the only 25 riders still in the event, the final loop consisted of 28-miles of the tightest, muddiest jungle ever. Lafferty busted through the brush the quickest, padding his lead and being one of only twelve riders finishing with in their hour.
