KTM Enduro factory team rider Taddy Blazusiak has claimed his fourth consecutive Erzberg Rodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble victory, dominating this year’s event after claiming a near perfect win.
Leading from the start Taddy didn’t have things all his own way as he made a small, but costly, mistake while weaving his way through one of the technical wooded sections of the course. Dropping off the racing line, and having to return to the start of the trail before working his way back towards the next check-point, Taddy dropped down into sixth position but wasted no time in working his way back into the lead.
Once back out front Blazusiak pushed no harder than he needed to and having opened up a commanding lead by the time he exited some of the event’s most technical sections he arrived at the finish in a time of 1.45:43, more than 10 minutes ahead of runner-up Andreas Lettenbichler.
Just 16 of the 500 starters finished the Red Bull Hare Scramble.
