2011-2012 FIM SuperEnduro Championship Video

KTM’s Taddy Blazusiak was unstoppable during the 2011-2012 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship, formerly known as the FIM Indoor Enduro.

Blazusiak swept the series, dominating each round. First Taddy won his home-round in Poland, then took Genoa with ease, and put in another superb display at the final round in Barcelona earlier this month. This was the Polish rider’s third consecutive title in the indoor series.

But it wasn’t only the indoor enduro series that he dominated; Taddy 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.

Attached above is a video highlighting Blazusiak’s 2011-2012 SuperEnduro series, with commentary from the KTM rider.

Indoor Enduro, as the event was originally called, is contested in an arena and riders have to negotiate a number of daunting obstacles. It is proving to be the perfect solution to bring world class Enduro competition into the city and giving the public a close up and personal look at the world’s leading talent. The sport in the classic sense is usually held in the open countryside over laps of around 70 km.
