Hi, my name is Tadeusz Blazusiak. My discipline is enduro. My friends call me Taddy. I was born on 26 April 1983 in Nowy Targ, Poland. My special talent is jet-skiing. My philosophy of life is embrace what life brings. My favourite food is Polish and Italian. My favourite music is soft rock.

Bio

Taddy Blazusiak was practically born into riding. He has been doing it since the tender age of five years old. He may not have been walking for long when he got on his first bike, but Taddy really exploded into the limelight in 2007, and almost by accident, as he won the world’s most infamous one-day race – the Erzbergrodeo – on a borrowed bike!

That result proved to be no flash in a pan, as Blazusiak went on to top the podium at the Erzbergrodeo for five consecutive years.

Since then, Taddy has come first in the Hell's Gate Championship two years running and was the winner of the Indoor Enduro World cup in both 2010 and 2011, when he was also crowned the Endurocross champion. Also in 2011 he took his first X Games gold medal in Los Angeles.

2013 was an absolute blinder for Taddy. He took gold in the Enduro X event at the X Games in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, and then proceded to take bronze in the Enduro event at the X Games in Munich. And if that wasn't enough, he returned from LA in 2014 with a fourth X Games gold medal under his belt.

Season after season he continues to impress us. In March 2015, Taddy bagged yet another SuperEnduro World Championship title, achieving a record six titles.

Also in 2015, his long-awaited return to the Erzbergrodeo was cut short when he got caught up in the chaos of the first climb of the Red Bull Hare Scramble. However, 2016 was more of a return to traditional Taddy form – he managed to place among the nine finishers, despite having snapped a brake lever early in the race. The name Taddy Blazusiak is definitely one for the Enduro history books!
