Erzbergrodeo XVI 2010 03.06.-06.06.2010
Noch 3 Tage 13 Stunden, 4 Minuten und 20 Sekunden ...

Erzbergrodeo XVI: Former Formula-1 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen challenges the “Iron Giant”!
Presse Erzberg - 07.05.2010It’s all about speed! Though the Erzbergrodeo is best known as the world’s biggest Offroad event for motorbikes, Citroen WRC factory pilot Kimi Räikkönen will try to beat the Iron Road Prologue’s top time on 4 wheels.

Räikkönen will be challenged by none other than Taddy Blazusiak. The polish KTM factory rider is regarded as the world’s most dominant Xtreme Enduro rider and has won the notorious Red Bull Hare Scramble at Erzberg for three years in a row. Taddy will attack the „Iron Giant“ with his 2-stroke KTM and is once again one of the clear favourites to grab the prestigious Hare Scramble win in 2010.

In cooperation with Red Bull and KTM, Erzbergrodeo-Mastermind Karl Katoch presents the spectaculous fight Rallye-Car versus Offroad motorcycle on June 6th as one of the highlights at the 16th Erzbergrodeo. „We are really happy that Kimi has taken up this challenge with enthusiasm. Our spectators will have the outstanding possibility to witness the ultimate comparison of a high-tech Rallye car versus the ultralight and powerful Enduro motorcycle.“, says Katoch.

Image
Räikkönen will be the first to attack the Iron Road Prologue’s 13 kilometer long gravel track with his more than 300 hp strong Citroen C4 WRC car. The 2007 Formula-1 World Champion has recently changed from his Ferrari cockpit into the highly competitive WRC Rallye Championship for 2010 and is currently ranked 10th place overall after 4 rounds. It’s more than obvoius that the blazingly fast Finn will arrive well prepared and fully loaded at Erzbergrodeo!


After Kimi’s dust has settled, Taddy Blazusiak will fire up his KTM 250 EXC and head towards the Erzberg’s summit to beat Kimis time. Not an easy task at all - but even though Räikkönen has way more horsepower under his wheels, Blazusiak will have the advantage of the ultralight and better handling of his motorbike on his side. The KTM can reach a high speed of 140 km/h and more on the wide gravel road and can go faster through the Prologue’s numerous hairpins.

No matter, who’s gonna win this challenge in the end – one thing is absolutely for sure: Motorsports fans from both sides can look forward to breathtaking drifts and astounding action at the Erzbergrodeo XVI.

here is little more info from the http://www.redbullrallye.com site:

KIMI VS. TADDY IN RED BULL HARE SCRAMBLE SHOWDOWN

Kimi will go head-to-head with another Red Bull athlete: multiple trial bike champion Taddy Blazusiak, from Poland. While Taddy will be on his usual KTM trials bike, Kimi will race him in the Citroen C4 WRC that the Finn uses on this year’s World Rally Championship.

The challenge is an awesome one: 15 kilometres of dirt road up a mountainside quarry, with more twists and turns than the Da Vinci Code.

Around 1000 riders compete in the event over the course of the weekend, watched by thousands of spectators, but one of the highlights will be the showdown between Kimi and Taddy on Saturday.

It’s a straightforward race from start to finish, and plenty of pride is at stake because the loser will have to wash the winner’s vehicle.

Kimi has never been scared to push himself to the limit, but the challenge he has set himself this time is an awesome one, as Taddy has been the Hare Scramble champion for the past three years running.

Kimi, by contrast, has contested only five World Championship rallies at the wheel of his Citroen C4 WRC. As usual, he will be co-driven by fellow Finn Kaj Lindstrom, while Taddy will tackle the course on his own.

Kimi said: “It should be a really interesting experience, although I really don’t know what to expect. I love bikes and I’ve got a few of my own, so I’m really looking forward to meeting Taddy and seeing the action. One thing I don’t enjoy though is washing bikes, so I have to make sure that I win! Seriously though, it’s going to be a nice challenge and I really don’t know who can be quickest. I suppose it depends on what the course is like. I’ve seen some videos and it looks awesome. We’re going to have a lot of fun this weekend…”

Taddy added: “Erzberg is the race that started my career as an extreme enduro rider, so it is a very special for me. Getting the chance to compete against Kimmi in his rally car will be great. He's a great guy and a huge name in motorsport so I'm honoured to be racing against him. I will be doing some testing this week in order to be as best prepared as I can be. I've been fortunate at Erzberg and have three wins now, so I'm looking to make that four. But anything can happen at Erzberg, it's such a demanding and unforgiving place.”


they seems to have a nice price for losing :lol:
