March 18, 2013
Taddy Blazusiak had a great 2012 season, finishing first in the AMA Endurocross series. Blazusiak also received the 2012 AMA National Championship Series Athlete of the year award.
Blazusiak has been racing since he was five and he felt that his toughest competition for the 2012 season was himself, "All I do is try to be a better rider every day," Blazusiak said. "That has always been my goal."
"Endurocross is super exciting and it brings off-road racing to the arena," Blazusiak explained. "It shows some of the amazing things off-roaders can do."
His plans for the 2013 season include AMA Endurocross, the global Xgames, Superenduro and a few cross country rallies.
Blazusiak likes to focus on the present. When asked about how long he plans to continue racing in this series he answered, "I make plans only for the upcoming season, I like it better that way."
When he isn't racing, Blazusiak enjoys road biking, go-karting, jetskiing and just having fun.
