Taddy Blazusiak Caps Months Of Perfect Racing With Championship Win
There's no doubt that KTM's Taddy Blazusiak is the best SuperEnduro rider in the world right now, but he officially erased all doubt with his latest performance in Barcelona.
Taking first, third and first again in the three races, Blazusiak earned himself enough points to clinch the 2012 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship with races to spare. The win is his third consecutive victory in the indoor series, and he was first overall in every race this season. In addition, he won every race in the EnduroCross outdoor championship in 2011.
Blazusiak also won the first-ever X-Games Gold Medal for EnduroCross, and the prestigious Erzberg Red Bull Hare Scramble for the fifth time. All in all, the past 15 months of racing for Blazusiak are among the most dominant for any professional motorsports competitor.
"He was just amazing," KTM team manager Alex Doringer told Ultimate Motorcycling. "Everything he did was perfect. He had great starts and rode faultless races all night long. For sure he's in a class of his own."
Blazusiak's KTM teammate Johnny Walker finished second overall in the competition and third at the Barcelona race. Swedish rider Joakim Ljunggren came in third.
