KTM North America: BOISE, Idaho – Suoer B rider Taddy Blazusiak earned his sixth win of the season when he took the victory at the Idaho Center in front of a packed stadium for the sixth round of the AMA EnduroCross Series. Factory FMF/KTM rider Mike Brown earned a strong second place finish to keep the championship alive until the finale in Las Vegas, NV.
Blazusiak and Brown both started strong turning the fastest hot laps of the night in order to secure first gate pick in their heats. Brown went on to win heat number one, Blazusiak heat number two and Justin Soule took the win in the final heat.
In the main event, Blazusiak got off to a powerful start by launching his KTM to the front of the pack to nail the holeshot. Brown came around the first corner in second place and began a battle with Soule for the position. The two swapped positions a few times before Brown made an aggressive move to make the pass stick. Brown was able to keep Blazusiak in his sights for the first half of the race before Blazusiak pulled to a big lead out front. Blazusiak went on to take his sixth win of the season to keep his perfect win streak alive. Brown finished second and Geoff Aaron earned third.
The series next heads to Las Vegas for a double format main event. Brown is the only rider that has a chance to challenge Blazusiak for the title in Vegas. For more information on the season finale and to buy your tickets visit www.endurocross.com.
