UNPLUGGED: TADDY BLAZUSIAK
In a world increasingly dominated by social media’s bite-sized content and short attention spans, there’s real value in getting a deeper insight into an athlete; into their lifestyle away from professional sport, what makes them tick, and stories about the defining moments in their career. And the new ‘GASGAS Dirt’ episodes are a perfect example of that.
GASGAS Dirt’s latest profile is with the always entertaining Taddy Blazuziak – the mad Polish rider who scored a last-minute KTM Factory team ride at the 2007 ErzbergRodeo in Austria, and promptly won the thing! In the years since, Taddy has gone on to be one of the most accomplished riders in the history of off-road racing, notching up multiple titles and wins at Erzberg, X-Games, AMA EnduroX, FIM SuperEnduro, FIM Indoor Enduro, and a bunch more.
But aside from his jovial nature, few of us know much about the guy’s life outside racing; about the fact he’s a neat freak, training machine, husband, proud father, dog owner and all-round nice guy.
So, if you’ve got 30 minutes, it’s well worth investing it into getting to know the very likeable Taddy Blazusiak….
