KTM factory rider Taddy Blazusiak continued his golden run on Sunday night to win the third and last SuperEnduro event of the FIM world championship season 2011-2012 in Barcelona, Spain, to again clean sweep both the event and the series.

Already the reigning champion, Taddy also won the first ever X-Games Gold medal in 2011, every race in the US EnduroCross competition and his fifth Erzberg Red Bull Hare Scramble, the event that originally vaulted him into the limelight and won him a KTM factory ride. 
“He was just amazing,” says 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.”

Taddy dedicated the victory to the memory of multi world enduro champion Mika Ahola of Finland who died recently.


Super-Cumbrian Jonny Walker took third on the night behind Alex Salvini to claim second in the series ahead of Swede Joakim Ljunggren.

“After crashing in qualifying the night did not start well,” says Jonny. “Damage to the bike meant I had to stop and therefore I did not earn a good gate choice for the finals. Because of this I felt under pressure and was riding very tense all night, the battle between me and Joakim was very close and he actually beat me in the first race which only made it more difficult for me.

“In the end I got the result I needed and it was great to win one race but I’m a little disappointed in the way I rode tonight. I would like to thank all the people and sponsors who have helped me earn this result.”
