If you want a roadracing TV fix now that CSBK, MotoGP, World Superbike, and Moto America are done for the season, you can catch CSBK’s Ben Young in an upcoming episode of Go Nitro.
Young, who’s been roadracing all over the world for the past few years (British Superbike, AMA), was CSBK’s rising star this season. The Scottish-Canadian rider took the Pro Rookie of the Year award, and ended the season in third overall in the Pro Superbike class on his BMW S1000RR, which might be why he ended up on TV.
Go Nitro is a sports show with a pretty broad focus, taking viewers behind the scenes of pro sports like basketball, hockey, baseball, and even motorsports. Young is featured in the second episode, after the cameras followed him around during the final event of the CSBK season, the
Mosport Canadian Tire Motorsport Park doubleheader.
The first three episodes of the show are available now on-demand on TV1, Bell Fibe TV, channel 1, so if you get that service, you can view this when it suits you.
