’s Taddy Blazusiak. Successfully completing his second ever rally event, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge where he placed seventh aboard his 450cc Rally Replica, the defending AMA Endurocross and FIM Superenduro champion now heads into one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year – X Games Brazil.

Marking the start of his Endurocross season, Taddy leads an all-star line-up of many of the world’s best enduro racers in Foz Do Iguacu. As a former X Games gold medallist Blazusiak is focused on securing yet more success, and putting the disappointment of his 2012 X Games campaign behind him.

One of only three European riders competing in Enduro X competition at the prestigious event, Taddy knows that competition for the podium places will be fierce. Alongside European FIM Superenduro regulars David Knight and Alfredo Gomez, US Endurocross competitors Geoff Aaron, Destry Abbott, 2012 X Games gold medal winner Mike Brown, Colton Haaker, Cory Graffunder, Kyle Redmond, Taylor Robert and Cody Webb will ensure a memorable start to the four-event 2013 X games tour.

Taddy arrived in Brazil fresh from his participation in the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge. With a brief opening in his competitive schedule allowing him to compete in Abu Dhabi, Taddy took the opportunity to further familiarize himself with the rally scene. With the goal of learning more about the all-important art of navigation, Taddy ended the event seventh in the motorcycle class, which was topped by team-mate Marc Coma.
