Irvine, CA (April 13, 2012)** - Taddy Blazusiak, the three time defending GEICO AMA EnduroCross Champion is preparing for another title defense as the series kicks off in Las Vegas on Friday, May 4th. During the "off season" from the U.S. series, Blazusiak went back to Europe and won the SuperEnduro championship, which is the European version of EnduroCross. He then spent several months training and testing in his home base in Spain and seems as ready as ever to fight for a fourth consecutive championship. To celebrate the start of another season, Blazusiak will drop his traditional number 111 and run the number 1 on his Factory Red Bull KTM. He will also pay thanks to GEICO, the series title sponsor and run their logo on his jersey for the opening round.
