Just heard that Jade got the 7th fastest time in the qualifying out of more than 1 700 competitors, on his Yamaha 250 2 stroke.

There's a whole buch of SA riders there. Will keep posted on the results.

Marc Torlage is not at Erzberg this year - but I agree he is a special talent!!! At 19 years old he has a very big future ahead of him.

News Sunday 06th June 2010 By Jonty Edmunds

KTM Enduro Factory Team rider Taddy Blazusiak has claimed his fourth consecutive Erzberg Rodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble victory, dominating this yearís event after claiming a near perfect win.
Leading from the start Taddy didnít have things all his own way as he made a small, but costly, mistake while weaving his way through one of the technical wooded sections of the course. Dropping off the racing line, and having to return to the start of the trail before working his way back towards the next check-point, Taddy dropped down into sixth position but wasted no time in working his way back into the lead.

Once back out front Blazusiak pushed no harder than he needed to and having opened up a commanding lead by the time he exited some of the eventís most technical sections he arrived at the finish in a time of 1.45:43, more than 10 minutes ahead of runner-up Andreas Lettenbichler. Just 16 of the 500 starters finished the Red Bull Hare Scramble.

Even more so than in previous years, Erzberg í10 was a busy event for Taddy. With thousands of Taddy fans flocking to the race to catch a glimpse of the extreme enduro star, on Saturday evening he took part in the Red Bull Motorclash Ė a race up the qualifying prologue course against former F1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen. Although Kimiís WRC Citroen topped the timed race, the event attracted thousands of spectators and proved to be a massively exciting part of the Erzberg festival.

Although running into problems during the first of his two qualifying runs, Taddy recorded the second fastest time at the end of his second run, which ensured an all important front row start for the Red Bull Hare  Scramble.

Taddy Blazusiak: ĎI was really focused on getting a good start because normally you can never guess when the flag will drop. I got a really good start, which was great. I made it to the top of the first climb in the lead. That made things so much easier for me this year. I felt pretty good early on but then I made a small mistake, which cost me quite a lot of time. I hit a tree stump and ended up quite a long way down a hill Iíd already ridden up. I arrived at the check point from the wrong side but they didnít allow me to continue, so I had to go back and come at it the correct way. I dropped from first to about sixth because of that. I chased the riders ahead of me like a maniac from that point. I was riding like I was in an enduro special test Ė I really gave it everything. I actually worked my way back into the lead quite quickly, and once I was there I just maintained my lead. In the past Iíve pushed and pushed, but this year, once I knew I had a good lead, I rode smart and took my time. There were some really physical sections of the track, but I really enjoyed it. Itís fantastic to win for a fourth year. There were some times not too long ago after I injured my shoulder when I wasnít sure if Iíd be racing Erzberg this year. I worked really hard to make sure I was ready, thatís why this win means a lot to me. Also, I have to thank KTM and everyone that helped and supported me. Itís been another great event and to win for a fourth time is just fantastic.í

I can't wait for the DVD. Did any of you guys check out the youtube clips of the previous events?

Looks totally insane, probably quite fun until you have a major face plant. :biggrin:
