He might have only been back in the country for 24 hours, but Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team rider Lachy Stanford has already assembled and test-ridden the Husqvarna FE 500 he‰Ûªll ride in this year‰Ûªs A4DE, after a milestone fifth ISDE finish last week in Spain.
The event, which concluded on Sunday at the Circuito de Navarra in Spain, saw the twenty-five-year-old power his Husqvarna FE 250 to 12th in the hyper-competitive E1 class, which went to Spanish rider Josep Garcia MontaÌ±a ahead of Brit Nathan Watson and another Spaniard, Victor Guerrero Ruiz.
‰ÛÏThis is my fourth ISDE on a Husqvarna and it shows how reliable they are to get me through four of them. I rode the Husqvarna FE 250 there, and it's awesome. What an amazing bike. I can't get over how well it turns. Just being a little bike I was struggling a little bit on the faster tests, but I still posted some pretty good times on it. It was different going from the 500 to the 250, but someone had to ride the 250 and I had fun on the thing.‰Û
