In SuperEnduro 2011-2012, Taddy was also untouchable in the first round in Genoa, Italy, and put on a triumphant performance in the second round at home in Poland. It was the third season in a row for Taddy to take the FIM Indoor title.“He was just amazing,” said KTM’s team boss Alex Doringer. “Everything he did was perfect. He had great starts and rode faultless races all night long. For sure he’s in a class of his own.”

Indoor Enduro, as the event was originally called, is contested in an arena and riders have to negotiate a number of daunting obstacles. It is proving to be the perfect solution to bring world class Enduro competition into the city and giving the public a close up and personal look at the world’s leading talent. The sport in the classic sense is usually held in the open countryside over laps of around 70 km.

Taddy dedicated the victory to the memory of multi World Enduro Champion Mika Ahola of Finland, who died recently as a result of injuries only weeks after he had announced his retirement from top class racing. Taddy also wore a memento of this great rider as a sign of tribute.As part of his preparation for the main racing season Taddy Blazusiak will be racing in the opening round of the British Sprint Enduro championship next weekend along with other top riders including Johnny Walker.
