The Canadian Superbike series returns to Mosport – now known as Canadian Tire Motorsports Park – this weekend, for the traditional end-of-season double header.
Of course, CMG has been racing double-headers all year long in the media class of the CBR250R Challenge, and so far, we’ve won them all. Costa took first place in all the races at Shannonville, St-Eustache and Mont-Tremblant, and Editor ‘Arris took both of the firsts at Shubenacadie. That leaves Mosport to conquer …
CMG already has a mathematical hold on the series; no other publication can beat our points, although Costa could theoretically lose the individual journalists’ points championship to Alex Crookes of Eat Sleep Ride.
The battle between the front-running kids in the quarter-litre series should be interesting as well; Stacey Nesbitt has moved into the points lead, but she’s been neck-and-neck with Tomas Casas and Ryan Roche all season. The championship in this class is certainly up for grabs at this point.
But while the CBR series is plenty of fun, most viewers will be headed to Mosport to take in the other classes. And in the pro and amateur superbike and sport bike classes, we can likely expect more of the same; Jordan Szoke has taken three of four pro superbike races this summer, with Andrew Nelson and Jodi Christie hot in pursuit. Christie has been in control of the pro sport bike class series, and Steve Crevier has been riding the wheels of his Harley-Davidson in the XR1200R spec series. There are a lot of points up for grabs this weekend, though, so we can expect great racing, especially from riders who want to move up the standings at the end of the season.
