Three convincing race wins sees the Polish rider make a perfect start to the new SuperEnduro season on home soil.
Claiming three convincing race wins, Blazusiak takes a deserved lead in the 2015 SuperEnduro championship having delighted his home fans and fired a warning shot above the heads of his rivals – Blazusiak certainly means business.
Second overall to the five-time SuperEnduro champ was former winner David Knight. Despite a last-minute change of machinery ahead of the Polish event, and having only competed in a handful of events during the past 12 months, DK showed that he still knows how to hustle indoors. Rounding out the overall prestige podium was newly-crowned US EnduroCross champion Cody Webb.

“It’s been the perfect start to the championship,” beamed a delighted Blazusiak from the podium. “To get three wins is just amazing, it’s given a great championship lead. It’s special to win here in Poland, and this result makes up for last year’s disappointments. I was taking risks, but somehow staying in control. It’s been an amazing night.”
The opening Prestige race showed just how exciting the 2015 SuperEnduro series is going to be. SuperPole winner Jonny Walker and crowd favourite Blazusiak hit the deck hard as they muscled their way into the first corner. As they picked themselves up off the dirt it was Spain’s Alfredo Gomez who lead, and stayed out front for the first four laps.
Blazusiak went all out as the laps wound down, amazingly getting himself up to second as the race neared its close. And when Webb crashed in spectacular style the Polish star did the unthinkable and moved into the lead. From last at the start of the first lap, Blazusiak claimed a hugely impressive win. Behind him, Knight took the runner-up spot, with a bitterly disappointed Webb third.
Race two saw the reversed start order turn things on their head. Spaniard Dani Gibert was first to lead, passed by countryman Mario Roman. Looking smooth out front, Roman couldn’t keep Blazusiak behind him. Somehow the Pole had worked his way forward from his second row starting position, moving into the lead on lap three. Going on to take the win, Blazusiak finished ahead of Knighter, with Gibert third.
The third and last final was all Taddy. Leading from the start, he looked fresh throughout and with a clear track ahead of him cleared off into the distance. 15 seconds clear of the second placed rider five minutes into the race, he cut through lapped riders like a hot knife through butter. Securing a third win, Blazusiak brought his night to a perfect close.
Walker secured second in the night’s last race, having endured a massively disappointing evening. Crashing at the start of the first final he was then taken out by a slower rider in the second final. It certainly wasn’t the night Jonny had hoped for. Knighter claimed third in the night’s last race, a result good enough for second overall behind Blazusiak, with Webb rounding out the overall top three.
