Three in a Row for Sugar Taddy - Blazusiak Wins Round 32009-09-14 23:50
Red Bull/KTM Factory rider Taddy Blazusiak claimed his third straight win at round three of the EnduroCross Series in Florence, SC.
Blazusiak easily qualified to the main event setting the fastest lap time in practice. In the main event, the holeshot went to Christini/KTM rider Geoff Aaron while Blazusiak was close behind. It did not take long before the Polish rider moved into the lead. From that point on, Blazusiak lead each lap and cruised to an easy win.
Shock Doctor/KTM rider Mike Brown also transferred to the main event. Unfortunately, Brown's night consisted of more than one crash which dropped him to 8th overall when the checkered flag flew.
"Winning the first three rounds of the US Endurocross championship is great, things just keep going well for me. I went home for a few weeks after the second round of the series to rest a little and I'm feeling really good now. I put in a lot of work before the championship started and it's starting to pay off now. I was confident that I could win again but you never know with Endurocross racing, anything can happen. I'm pretty pleased with the way I rode to be honest. Again, not making too many mistakes was important to me. I made a pretty good start and then just tried to stay as smooth as I could during the first half of the race. Once I past halfway I knew I was safe. Well, pretty safe. I have to say a big thanks to all my team."
