Blazusiak Tops Washington EnduroCross

Cycle News Staff | August 15, 2011

The second round of the GEICO AMA EnduroCross Series made its way to the Pacific Northwest and Everett, Washington’s Comcast Arena, August 13, where KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak recorded his second straight win, his first coming at X Games 17 in Los Angeles two weeks earlier.

Blazusiak, riding a KTM 350 four-stroke, jumped out to an early lead, but it wasn’t until the third lap that he began to pull away from the field. Throughout the main event, Blazusiak rode smooth and fast, lapping up to third place before taking the checkered flag in first place.

Taking runner-up honors was GEICO Honda’s Geoff Aaron, followed by Beta’s Cody Webb. KTM’s Mike Brown finished fourth, while Great Britain’s Graham Jarvis, who recently won the Romaniacs, Tough One and Hell’s Gate extreme off-road events, rounded out the top five.

Maria Forsberg won the Women’s class, Shane Culberson won the Vet 35+ class, and Ben Rego won the Amateur division.
