Blazusiak Dominates Opening Round of 2015 SuperEnduro World Championship

Posted:

If ever there was proof that SuperEnduro delivers some of the most exciting off-road motorcycle racing there is, the first round of the 2015 Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro series was it.

With home favourite Taddy Blazuziak riding at his absolute best, accidents and incidents aplenty filled each of the three Prestige class finals as the series kicked off in Poland on Saturday the 6th of December.

Blazuziak proved unbeatable and secured three wins to take the night‰Ûªs overall win ahead of David Knight and Cody Webb.

Crashing with team-mate Jonny WALKER in the first corner of the opening final, Taddy put on what will be remembered as one of the all-time best come-from-behind rides to claim an amazing win.

Spain‰Ûªs Alfredo Gomez made the most of the chaos in the first turn, leading during the early laps before being passed by Cody Webb. Webb, who moved passed Gomez when the Husqvarna rider tangled with a lapped rider, looked like he had the race won. But in losing drive as he took off over a log jump he crashed heavily, throwing away his lead.

By this time Taddy had worked his way in front of David KNIGHT for second and inherited the lead with just one lap to go. Claiming a well-deserved win Taddy finished ahead of Knight and a disappointed Webb.

The second Prestige final saw Spain‰Ûªs Dani Gibert claim the holeshot from the reversed order start. It was an all-Spanish battle for the lead early on as Mario ROMAN took over the #1 position for a couple of laps.

But then it was Taddy, who‰Ûªd somehow managed to work his way to the front with amazing ease, who took over the lead. He was never headed. Opening up a comfortable advantage he held position and secured a second race win. David KNIGHT delivered a second strong performance to take the runner-up position with Gibert holding on for third.

Race three saw a Blazuziak start-to-finish race win, a result that brought his night to a perfect close.

Opening up a commanding lead at the front of the race Taddy once again worked his way through lapped riders with ease to finish ahead of Jonny Walker, who finally showed the form that took him to the Akrapovic SuperPole win. Knight finished third, but the night belonged to Taddy.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been the perfect start to the championship,‰Û
