Some nights luck just ain’t on your side. For GASGAS Factory Racing’s Taddy Blazusiak, round three of the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Hungary was one of those nights. Bad luck and misfortune reared its ugly head time and time again for our Polish SuperEnduro ace to see him battle his way to seventh overall.

  • A crash-filled night puts Taddy on the back foot in Budapest
  • Round three was highlighted with third in SuperPole
  • Taddy looks ahead to round four in Israel next month
A bumpy start to his night saw Taddy set the third-fastest time in the SuperPole hot lap, despite a crash on finish line jump. In true Blazusiak spirit he brushed the incident off and focused on race one. A multi-rider crash on the opening lap put him on the back foot. In full damage limitation mode, Taddy pushed on to climb the leaderboard on his EC 350F. From 10th place, he reached as high as fourth, before being awarded fifth when the race was cut short due a red flag incident.

Misfortune continued for Blazusiak in race two. Always a dramatic part of the night’s racing with the start order reversed, Taddy became stuck in traffic following a row two start. Battling from 11th position to an eventual eighth, the Polish star was eager to turn fortunes around for race three.

In the early stages of the third and final race, Taddy appeared to have luck back on his side. Riding well and hitting his lines with confidence, the multiple world champion was comfortably lying inside the top three. However, a clash with another rider put paid to his high hopes of a solid result. A broken clutch lever forced him to retire and end his night early.

Finishing seventh overall on the night, Blazusiak leaves Budapest a close fourth overall in the championship chase and will look to bounce back in true Taddy style at round four in Israel on March 2.

Taddy Blazusiak: “It was an eventful night for sure. I had good speed, but I was always finding trouble on the track no matter what I did. I hoped race three would go better, but I was hit by another rider when in third place and that clash broke my clutch lever. It was impossible to ride the track without it, which resulted in a disappointing end to a tough night. Israel is next on the cards, so hopefully we can turn things around there.”
