The Canadian Superbike championship heads to Shubenacadie this weekend for the third round of the series.
Last year, Jodi Christie earned his first Pro Superbike win at the Nova Scotia track, and he’s sure to be pressing hard to overcome leader Jordan Szoke; second-place Christie is sitting on 90 points, while Szoke has 112 points. The CSBK schedule is short, and time is running out for Christie if he doesn’t make up some ground soon.
Christie also has to push hard in Pro Sport Bike; for the last few years, Christie has dominated this series, but now he’s in second overall here as well, with 91 points to series leader Kenny Reidmann’s 96 points.
The Harley-Davidson XR1200 series is gone this year, but there will still be amateur superbike and sport bike races, and the CBR250 series travels east as well. In past years, the Atlantic Roadracing League has also run races on the same weekend as CSBK, but this year that won’t be happening.
The action starts on Friday, with qualifying and the first CBR250 race on Saturday. The rest of the racing takes place on Sunday. Find out more details at CSBK’s site here. If you live in the Halifax area and want to meet some of the CSBK racers, you can do that on Thursday at Pro Cycle (details here).
