The Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro World Championship served up another great night of racing, this time inside the SachsenArena in Riesa, Germany, where round two of the series saw three different riders claim Prestige class wins.

Taddy Blazusiak, who dominated the opening round of the series in Poland, was the first to win. Next up David Knight delivered the goods to win the second final, before Jonny Walker claimed the chequered flag as he topped the night’s closing race.

As winner of the opening round of the series in Poland, Blazusiak was determined to continue his winning ways in Germany and did exactly that at the end of the first Prestige class final.

Claiming the holeshot, the KTM star was briefly passed by Knight on lap two before returning to the front. Despite crashing in the log section the Pole took the win ahead of Knight with Alfredo Gomez third.

The reversed starting order for the second Prestige race saw Knight as the quickest rider to work his way to the front, taking the lead almost immediately. With the likes of Blazusiak, Walker, Gomez and Taylor Robert forced to fight their way through the pack Knight secured a comfortable win. 11th at the end of lap one Taddy rounded out the top three behind Knight and Robert.

The night’s final Prestige race saw KTM factory riders Blazusiak and Walker hold the top two positions throughout the 10-lap race. Blazusiak lead for the first six laps before a mistake in the sand corner saw Walker take over the lead. Staying out front for the final four laps Jonny joined Blazusiak and Knight as the third Prestige class winner.
