That was a tough night of racing, but Taddy Blazusiak fought hard at round two of the 2023 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship to finish in a spectacular third place! The Polish star delivered a true-grit performance to bounce back from a slow start in Riesa, Germany and end it on the podium.

After missing the podium at the opening round of the season in Poland, Taddy Blazusiak was determined to bounce back with a top-three result at round two in Germany. Despite a course that punished the slightest of mistakes, Taddy kept his EC 350F on track all night to end Riesa on a high.

Not getting his night off to the start he hoped for, race one proved to be Taddy’s worst result of the night, but one that ultimately fired him up for the remaining races to come. On track to finish third, a crash on the rocky climb saw him slip to 10th for an eventual seventh place finish.

Determined to make amends, he would spend the remainder of his night consistently inside the sharp end of the results. Capitalizing on the reversed start order for race two, Taddy was quickly up to second and riding hard. Holding that position for a lap, he slipped back to third. But with a drama-filled final lap, he raced his way back into second. Although having a heavy tangle with rival Billy Bolt at the checkered flag, our GASGAS star heroically shrugged it off to line up for race three.

Giving it his all, Taddy put in arguably his best ride of the night. Into second place early on, the Polish ace was looking strong until a crash on that notorious rocky climb pushed him back to third. Making no more mistakes, he crossed the finish line in third to earn a well-deserved spot on the podium with third overall.

Pumped with his night’s work, Taddy now looks forward to round three of the championship in Budapest, Hungary on February 4.

Taddy Blazusiak:“It was tough night, but it ended great. I wasn’t happy with how round one went, so I wanted to improve and bounce back from that. In race one I was in third, but then crashed on the rocks and dropped back to last. I regrouped and got seventh there. For the rest of the night I was just fighting as hard as I could. I’m super happy to come through for third overall and finish on the podium.”
