Taddy triumphant

Polish enduro star Taddy Blazusiak continued his clean sweep of the GEICO Endurocross Series with his fourth victory (of four) in Ontario, Canada. What started with a gold medal in this year’s inaugural Endurocross event at the X-Games has now evolved into a clean score card for all events held so far this season with Taddy right on track for yet another title. This and his five consecutive wins in the notorious Red Bull Hare Scramble at the Erzberg Rodeo have marked Taddy as the rider to beat in this type of extreme Enduro competition. “I am really excited to get another win,” said Taddy. “I’m really happy with this season so far and am really looking forward to the next event.”
