Red Bull KTM Factory rider Taddy Blazusiak of Poland returned to the top of the EnduroCross Championship podium on Saturday night at round three of the competition held at the Citizens Bank Arena, Ontario.
Blazusiak finished just ahead of championship lead and KTM partner in crime Mike Brown who won the opening two rounds of the season, as the pair dominated their respective heats.
When the gate dropped for the main event, it was Brown who launched off the line first and came around the first corner and into the rock section with the lead. Blazusiak was right behind him in second position.
The two teammates pulled away from the rest of the field and began their race long battle. Brown held the lead through the first half of the race before he made a mistake in the firewood section that allowed Blazusiak to close the gap. The next corner, Blazusiak made his pass for the lead.
Brown did not let Blazusiak out of his sight and the two remained close for the remaining laps. When the checkered flag flew, it was Blazusiak, who switched to the KTM 250 XC-F for the round who held on for the win with Brown finishing second. Cody Webb rounded out the podium in third.
