One of the world‰Ûªs most decorated Enduro riders, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing‰Ûªs Taddy Blazusiak has his sights set on winning the 2018 World Enduro Super Series (WESS).
Despite officially hanging up his racing boots in December 2016, Blazusiak‰Ûªs retirement was short-lived. With the mixed-discipline format of WESS ticking all the right boxes for Blazusiak, the 2018 series presents the Polish star with a unique new challenge. With his competitive spirit reignited, Taddy is hungry to become the ultimate enduro champion.
Taddy, what is it about the World Enduro Super Series that essentially enticed you out of retirement for 2018?
‰ÛÏTo be honest I‰Ûªve been waiting for a championship like this for years. I think WESS is the real enduro series I‰Ûªve been looking for. Personally, I feel that this is what Enduro needs ‰ÛÓ this is what our sport needs to advance. Enduro has so many individual disciplines, so I think this will be a series for the real all-round off-road racer. It fits a rider who can ride technical terrain or go sixth gear flat out down a beach. I first heard about WESS six months after I retired, and when I was told the series would be a reality for 2018 I had to get back racing. I was still riding for fun then and felt competitive. I‰Ûªm still willing to go out on the race track and give it 100 per cent to win‰Û
