TADDY BLAZUSIAK FIRED UP FOR EXTREME XL LAGARES

MULTI WORLD CHAMPION HAS SIGHTS SET ON FIM HARD ENDURO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SUCCESS IN 2021

Were going enduro racing, and with Taddy Blazusiak in control things are looking good as we take on the first ever running of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. Leading GASGAS Factory Racing into the eight-round series, Taddy is more motivated than ever to make his mark on the extreme enduro scene once again and hopefully come away with another world title.

  • Blazusiak leads GASGAS Factory Racing into 2021 hard enduro season
  • Enduro legend will compete on our awesome EC 300 2-stroke machine
  • Eight-round FIM Hard Enduro World Championship kicks off in Portugal

Were proud to have a rider of Taddys stature leading our first assault into the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. As a six-time FIM SuperEnduro World Champion, five-time AMA EnduroCross Champion, and five-time Red Bull Erzbergrodeo winner hes a rider synonymous with the very toughest events the sport of enduro has to offer. And with the creation of the new hard-enduro-only FIM championship we know we have one of the best in the business to represent the brand.

The FIM Hard Enduro World Championship will feature eight rounds in eight different countries, including a trip across the Atlantic to Tennessee, USA for the Red Bull TKO. First however, eyes will be on Portugal for round one and Extreme XL Lagares. While the race wont feature any spectators unfortunately, it will still deliver some of the toughest terrain over the course of the three-day event.

Competing alongside Taddy as a GASGAS Factory Supported junior rider, up-and-coming Austrian racer Michael Walkner will also be looking for success on his EC 300. Focused on gaining as much experience as possible from his teammate, while fighting him for the podium places, the 23-year-old is super-excited to start his 2021 campaign, and eager to show what he can do!

Taddy and Michaels first FIM Hard Enduro World Championship event will be Extreme XL Lagares, in Portugal, on May 7-9.

Taddy Blazusiak: I am so excited 2021 is looking to be a great year. I think the new FIM Hard Enduro World Championship is something I, and a number of the other extreme riders, have been looking forward to for a long time, and Im really looking forward to seeing how things turn out. With the SuperEnduro Championship postponed, my training has turned back to the longer rides and more extreme terrain that were likely to see at this years Hard Enduro World Championship. I have switched back to the 2-stroke too, to get back up to speed on that. Its been good, Im really looking forward to finally getting some racing done, so Ive been prepping myself, prepping the camper, getting everything ready for the season. Its going to be a good one!.
