Husqvarna’s Andrew DeLong Back In Action

After sitting on the sidelines for six weeks with a broken hand, Fred Andrews Racing (FAR) Husqvarna’s Andrew DeLong is getting back into the swing of things. DeLong returned to racing at the Rattlesnake National Enduro in Cross Fork, Pennsylvania where he carded a seventh-place finish.

“I was really excited to get back to racing today,” DeLong said. “It felt good on the bike but I got tired the last two tests. I need to get my hand stronger, but I am happy with my day.”

AD has another solid month to train before his next race – the Unadilla GNCC on September 8. But after having missed two rounds of the 2013 series, Andrew is now focusing his efforts on the International Six Day Enduro as a member of the U.S. Junior Trophy Team.

“We were just at the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days in Ohio selling t-shirts to help raise money for my Six Days effort,” explained DeLong. “Not only that, I did some interview stuff with a bunch of Husqvarna legends like Malcolm Smith, Dick Burleson and Terry Cunningham. It was really exciting to talk to Malcolm about Six Days; we talked for a while and he gave me a lot of advice. It means a lot to have such great support from someone like him.”
