Hot on the heels of the announcement that US racer Ricky Dietrich will contest the 2012 Husqvarna ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship, organisers GMC Events are pleased to announce that Poland’s endurocross star Taddy Blazusiak will also take his place on the startline at the series opener in Aldershot on February 11/12.
Blazusiak, the reigning AMA endurocross champion and runaway leader of the FIM SuperEnduro series, will use rounds one and two of BSEC series as part of his preparation for the forthcoming 2012 AMA endurocross series. Taddy, who has dominated the indoor enduro racing scene throughout the past 24 months, has also indicated that – schedule permitting – he will contest as many rounds of the BSEC series as possible.
“I had a great time when I raced the first rounds of the 2010 sprint enduro series in the UK and have wanted to come back ever since,” says Taddy. “Now that my schedule allows me to do that I’m really looking forward to competing in the British Sprint Enduro Championship again. The sprint format really works for me as great training as each special test is about the same length as an endurocross race. In the States I race against a lot of riders from motocross backgrounds so I have to constantly keep working on my speed.
“The sprints are a great place for me to do that. I know there’re a lot of really fast riders in the UK so I’m excited to get in among them and do my best. I also have a lot of fans in the UK so to get the chance to come back and race in front of them is something I’m really looking forward to.”
