The final race broadcast of Canadian Superbike’s 2021 season runs this week, with TSN showing Race 2 of the third round Tuesday through Friday.
This season, CSBK had a seven-race series for the Pro Superbike class, with two races to start the season at Calabogie, a tripleheader (!!!) at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, and then two more races to close the season at Calabogie. Despite the challenges of running through the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers actually managed to stuff more races into the schedule than some other non-COVID years, although they were only able to run at a limited number of tracks.
Now, the last of those races hits TSN, with the September 18 showdown scheduled to run on TSN on November 2 at 3:30pm ET, or 12:30pm PT on TSN 2. The final broadcast re-runs Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday—see showtimes below:
The 2021 Canadian Superbike broadcast season is over this week, with the final race of the year running on Tuesday on TSN.
TSN Confirm Final CSBK Pro Superbike Feature Race National Broadcast of 2021 Season
Toronto, ON – The final feature Pro Superbike race of the seven-part 2021 Canadian National Superbike Road racing season will be broadcast next week on The Sports Network, TSN. Held on a beautiful fall weekend at Calabogie Motorsports Park, southwest of Ottawa, ON, the popular 20 turn, 5-kilometer-long road course provided plenty of action.
The series decider premieres on Tuesday, November 2 on TSN Two, at 3:30 pm Eastern Standard Time.
This event was the deciding race of the 2021 Championship season, with the coveted 2022 CSBK number one plate up for grabs.
Following a tense and tight points battle, the right to hoist the famed Canada Cup would come down to a straight fight between rookie Pro Alex Dumas, age 19, from Quebec City, QC, and Ben Young, age 28, the 2019 CSBK overall CSBK Superbike Champ from Collingwood, ON.
Dumas won in his first career CSBK Pro Superbike start at Calabogie’s opener in July, while Young took the win in the opening of an unprecedented three Pro Superbike races at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers backed round at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in July.
Two-time MotoAmerica National Champ Dumas rides a Suzuki GSX-R1000 backed by Liqui Moly, MPG Moto and the Fast Riding School, his machines prepared by veteran tuner Patrice Goyette.
Former British National Series and MotoAmerica front runner Young, born in Scotland, rides a BMW S1000RR with support from Van Dolder’s Home Team, Barrie Trim and Molding and Parts Canada. Young’s BMW is built by Hindle’s Scott Cartier and Alberta-based Willie Vass.
As well as competing for the Canada Cup, this dynamic duo also aimed to lead their brand to the newly announced Manufacturer’s Title, for the best performing brand of bike across the seven races of the series. Dumas was backed up by the OneSpeed Suzuki of Toronto’s Trevor Daley, while Quebecer’s Michael Leon and Samuel Guerin raced other top BMWs.
Dumas had already clinched the Brooklin Cycle Racing Professional Rookie of the Year Award.
