Polish SuperEnduro opener belongs to KTM's Blazusiak
Two from three final victories enough to seal the overall victory.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Taddy Blazusiak has won the opening round of the 2019 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship held in Krakow, Poland, ahead of FMF KTM’s Cody Webb in second.
On a dry and fast track at the Tauron Arena, Blazusiak delighted his home fans by taking the overall win at the opening round of the championship. He went 1-1-4 to clinch the overall despite an early fall in final three.
Blazusiak rode his 350 EXC-F to the winner’s circle ahead of Webb, as he recorded a consistent effort of 2-3-2 finishes. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker completed the podium, with teammate Alfredo Gomez fourth after topping the final encounter.
The 2019 SuperEnduro World Championship continues with round two in Riesa, Germany, at the beginning of next year on 5 January, with Blazusiak leading the standings ahead of defending title-holder Webb.
