And this one’s going to be tough.
He is hoping for the best as he heads home to Poland to compete in the HERO Challenge – round six of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championships.
“Since TKO I’ve not actually ridden my GasGas as my main focus has been on trying to get the full strength back into my shoulder,” said Blazusiak.
“It’s not an ideal situation going into a race, but I have a pretty good base fitness from training last winter and I’ve kept on top of my cardio, so I think I should be able to compete at a decent level.
“It’s a faster format race, which I think will suit me, and like always I’ll be giving it everything I have. I’m as ready as I can be and I’m excited to be racing in my home country again. I can’t wait to get started!”
Confident all will be okay and that he can rise to the occasion and deliver his best in front of his home fans despite his time spent off a bike, Blazusiak also knows that even with his impressive fitness, HERO Challenge will be tough.
Expected to be the fastest race of the series, in mixing motocross, enduro, and superenduro elements, the three-hour extreme cross-country race will be anything but straight forward. In addition, the event will feature a qualifier, as well as a superenduro event, prior to the main race.
Competing alongside Blazusiak once again will be GasGas Factory Supported junior rider Michael Walkner. Sitting eighth in the FIM HEWC point standings, Walkner will look to gain more international race experience while also hoping to get his EC 300 model bike as close to the podium as possible.
