It’s never over until you reach the checkered flag! Putting in one heck of a ride, Taddy Blazusiak dug deep to grab third overall at the penultimate round of the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Jerusalem, Israel. In what proved to be an up-and-down night on the track, Taddy kept himself and his EC 350F in the fight, earning a 4-3-3 scorecard to bag a much deserved slice of podium pie!

  • Taddy earns well-deserved podium finish in Israel!
  • Polish star battled through the night for a 4-3-3 results
  • With one round remaining the fight is on for third in the championship
In the SuperPole, Taddy was feeling strong on the tight and slippery Jerusalem track. Putting his years of superenduro experience to good use, he completed an inch perfect lap, that provisionally put him into the lead. Eventually taking third he secured an important championship point.

Fired up for race one, Taddy got a great jump out of the starting gate and entered the first corner wheel-to-wheel with Billy Bolt. Second out of the first turn he slipped to third at the end of lap one, fighting hard to hold position. With a couple of mistakes creeping in to his riding, Taddy finally placed fourth.

Looking to make the best of the reversed start order for race two, Taddy dug deep on lap one to make up positions. Up to fourth place, he got halted in a multi-rider pile up on the tire mound, which dropped him back to seventh. Regrouping, the EC 350F rider put on a charge and began working his way back up the order. With true never surrender grit, the Polish star snatched third position on the final lap.

As the gate dropped for the third and final race of the night, a place on the podium was very much up for grabs. Starting fourth, Taddy put himself on the back foot when he became tangled with a group of riders in the rock gardens. Refusing to quit, he shrugged off the error and raced his way back into contention. Lap after lap he picked riders off to finish third and with it ended his night in a hard fought, and well-deserved, third overall.

With the final round of the season on home soil in Poland in two weeks’ time, Taddy has kept the fight alive for a top-three championship result. Only seven points separate him from rival Cody Webb, and you can bet on Taddy coming out swinging in Gliwice on March 18.

Taddy Blazusiak: “In what was a tough night, I’m super happy to come away with third overall. I didn’t seem to make it easy on myself and I had to fight like a lion to get this podium. My fitness and speed is there, but I seem to keep putting myself in the wrong place at the wrong time. In the final race there was a bit of confusion when a couple of us riders crashed. Overall, with one round remaining we’re still in the fight for third in the championship. It’s a home race in Poland too, so I’m looking forward to that and will do my best to end this year on a high.”
