Taddy Blazusiak: triumphant return to Racing
Sonntag, 10. Dezember 2017


Blazusiak back to his best with 2018 SuperEnduro Opener Win
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Taddy Blazusiak has made a triumphant return to racing, claiming victory at the opening round of the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Poland. The six-time world champion showed he’s lost none of his speed despite a year’s absence to claim the overall win in Krakow. Making it a memorable night for KTM, FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Cody Webb followed him home for the runner-up overall result. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s SuperEnduro-Rookie Billy Bolt finishes third overall.

Taddy Blazusiak: “It’s an amazing feeling to come back and win, especially in my home town of Krakow. To be honest, I played it smart tonight. After being away from racing for a whole year I knew the intensity of SuperEnduro was going to be tough – it’s so difficult to prepare for, no matter how hard you train. I was suffering with arm-pump today but I think the secret is being comfortable with being uncomfortable. Before my retirement, I won everything that I wanted to win, so to be able to come back for another go gives me the chance to enjoy my racing. The next round in Riesa is the only other round I have ridden already, the rest will all be new so that makes a nice challenge. I came back to enjoy my racing and now I’m going into the next round with the red plate — I couldn’t be happier."

Cody Webb: “It’s awesome to be back racing in Europe again. I had some amazing battles out there tonight. The second race didn’t go so well, the reversed start caught a lot of us out. I managed to claw my way back to fifth, but it wasn’t quite enough. I rode great in the other two races, even after making a couple of mistakes. I had some great battles with Taddy, it’s good to see him riding so well. I had the speed to reel him in, so that’s nice to know. I’m happy to be back and looking forward to fighting for the rest of the series.”

Billy Bolt

Billy Bolt: “I’m really happy with how it’s gone today. On the whole, a race win and finishing on the overall podium is really encouraging. In the first race I was suffering from arm pump a little and wasn’t able to push like I wanted to. The second race was good but in the third I was tiring a little, but it wasn’t too bad. You can never really prepare for the intensity of SuperEnduro, no matter how hard you try to push yourself in training. I’m looking forward to round two, I just want to keep doing what I’m doing, enjoy the racing and enjoy the experience. It’s amazing to race in front of the fans like this, their cheering really motivates you to give that little bit extra.”
