“It’s like I’ve just been in for a service,” commented Taddy ahead of this weekend’s SuperEnduro event in Spain.
“Scans revealed that in order to fully treat my right shoulder I would need surgery. Unfortunately this would take over three months to recover from so that wasn’t really an option. Instead with some intensive rehab and physiotherapy I could return to the track much quicker. I’ll still have some pain when I race but I can live with that.
“During the downtime I’ve also had some work done on my left shoulder and wrist to treat some old injuries. Everything feels like better again.”
With round two of the SuperEnduro World Championship taking place inside the Palau Sant Jordi stadium in Barcelona on Sunday, Blazusiak has spent the last two weeks testing for the race.
“Two weeks ago my doctors gave me the all clear to start riding again. At first it was just some gentle riding – nothing too stressful. During the week I’ve been testing on my endurocross track and everything feels OK.
“I’m excited to get back racing again. With a lot of additional riders entered, this race is shaping to be very competitive. Hopefully it should bring some action packed racing. At the moment I have a six-point lead in the championship so it’s not possible to think about winning titles yet. Instead I’ll be just giving it 100 per cent to win.”
