After two seasons in the hands of Colton HAAKER (USA) and the Husqvarna Factory team, the title of World Prestige Champion finally returned to KTM Factory in 2018 via Cody WEBB (USA)! In order to hold on to this much sought after crown, the Austrian brand will once again present a formidable team composed of WEBB and Taddy BLAZUSIAK (PL)!
Teammates since last year, the American and the Pole offered a breathtaking duel during the 5 rounds of the season and everything was played out in the final round in Sweden.
This season reigning World Champion Cody WEBB will once again team up with “King” Taddy!
After winning the Prestige crown for the first time in his career, WEBB will only have one goal: the double! Which, so far, only BLAZUSIAK and HAAKER have managed to achieve! But to do that he will have to show the same dominance as he did in Germany and Spain last year, all season long.
For his part, BLAZUSIAK showed in 2018 that he is still a force to be reckoned with and a title favourite. The six-time World Champion will want to win a seventh crown against this very strong and competitive field!
Note the absence of Jonny WALKER (GB) from the team, the Brit has decided to focus 100% on Hard Enduro in 2019…
With such a formidable line-up, the KTM Factory team managed by Fabio FARIOLI are sure to fight it out at the top, and no doubt that BLAZUSIAK and WEBB will give us another fantastic duel over the five rounds of the season. See you on December 8 in Krakow (Poland) at the Tauron Arena, where Taddy remains undefeated…
