Taddy Strikes Again

Cycle News Staff | December 6, 2009

KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak notched up another maximum-points score last night in round two of the FIM Indoor Enduro World Cup held in Genoa’s Palasport.

With this latest result, Blazusiak continues to be the undisputed high roller in Extreme Enduro and now has a perfect 90-point tally after two of four events in the indoor series.

Second place went to reigning indoor champion Ivan Cervantes, the Spaniard now sitting on 58 points after a strong ride on his KTM. Third place went to Husaberg’s Joakim Ljunggren.

“I didn’t feel that good during the first practice session, but I soon got into things and, well, everything worked out perfectly,” Blazusiak said. “I was really struggling with all of the right hand corners because I didn’t want to put my foot down. One thing that helped me again was my starts. I had a great start in the first race and got the holeshot, but I accelerated too hard out of the gate in the second race, lost traction and paid the price. But I knew that if I didn’t make any other mistakes I’d be able to get to the front, which I did. Then the third final went well again so I won all three races like I did in Sheffield.”

The remaining two World Cup events will be held in Spain – in Vigo on January 9 and Madrid on January 30
