Only a few weeks after the Saddleback Xtreme race in Bedford , KY , SEER held its season finale at the infamous Trials Training Center in Sequatchie , Tennessee . The location has terrain for all skill levels and any type of off-road motorcycle riding / racing .
Current leader DRT Husqvarna ' s Ryder LeBlond , had a narrow points lead over Rieju ' s Quinn Wentzel , with the series prize being a trip to Erzberg to compete in the Erzbergrodeo , one of the most prestigious hard enduro races in the world .
Throughout the four hours of racing , the lead traded hands several times . After the first lap , Sherco-supported rider Nick Fahringer sat in the lead , less than five seconds ahead of Leblond . The Husqvarna rider was able to overtake Fahringer to capture the lead for each of the next three laps , but had a slight hicuup on lap five , dropping back 30.7 seconds behind . But that setback was short lived , as laps six through 14 saw LeBlond keep a comfortable pace ahead of the rest of the pack and take the event win , securing the series overall .
Taking second for the event was Nick Fahringer , with Quinn Wentzel rounding out the podium .
