Blazusiak blasts his way to maximum points at Genoa Indoor Enduro

Posted:

KTM's Extreme Enduro maestro, factory rider Taddy Blazusiak, notched up another maximum points score on Saturday night with a near flawless display of riding in the second event of the FIM Indoor Enduro World Cup held in Genoa's Palasport.

With this latest result Taddy continues to be the undisputed high roller in Extreme Enduro and now has the highest possible 90 -point score after two of the four events that brings the thrill of Enduro racing right into the heart of the city.

Second was the reigning indoor champion Ivan Cervantes onboard his KTM. Ivan has now picked up 58 points and looked much more confident in front of the Italian crowd than in the first event in Sheffield, England. Third place went to Swedish rider, Husaberg's Joakim Ljunggren.

KTM Enduro Factory Team boss Fabio Farioli said the Taddy and Ivan were in a class of their own on Saturday night, delivering a superb performance of speed and agility to the large and enthusiastic crowd. "Taddy and Ivan were incredibly fast, "he said. "Taddy took the holeshot in the first heat and the others had no chance to catch him. Then Ivan took the holeshot in the second heat while Taddy crashed and had to restart. He then made an amazing recovery from seventh place and managed to catch Ivan in the last lap. Ivan also took the holeshot in the third heat but Taddy overtook him in the second lap and went on to win. Taddy and Ivan then put on a great show for the spectators with some real "freestyle" riding and the crowd really enjoyed it."

Taddy Blazusiak said via his media service: ‰Û÷I didn't feel that good during the first practice session but I soon got into things and, well, everything worked out perfectly. 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."

Ljunggren was happy with his third place, ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really pleased with the way everything‰Ûªs gone here in Italy,‰Û
