Andrew DeLong, Husqvarna’s recently crowned AMA National Enduro Champion was back in action today at the Powerline Park GNCC this weekend where riders were destined to battle muddy conditions at the St. Clairsville, Ohio venue.
DeLong got a good start on his FC 350, but shortly after his day soon took a turn for the worse.
”I was running out front with the lead pack in the first two laps,” Andrew recalled. “I saw a mound of mud in the road and I thought I’d try a different line than everyone else, but that mud pile turned out to be a big old rock. As soon as I hit it, it was like I hit the eject button. It was really one of the hardest crashes I had in my whole life.”

Red Bull KTM rider Taddy Blazusiak fought his way back to finish second in Rd. 4 of the AMA EnduroCross series on Saturday night after crashing while in the lead of the final. Taylor Robert (FMF/KTM Factory rider) finished fourth.
Blazusiak, a Red Bull-sponsored athlete started in heat three and quickly took the lead after the first two corners. He then went on to take the win by over 15 seconds. Robert, who raced in the first heat, also took a win to give both KTM riders a spot in the main event.
Blazusiak got away well in the main event and immediately took the lead. He began to pull away from the pack but came unstuck in the rock section, allowing Colton Haaker to overtake him. Blazusiak made a quick recovery and was just a bike length ahead of Cody Webb. The two riders battled it out for the second place but Blazusiak managed to hang on to the advantage.
