Tough luck for faithful Canadian roadracing backers Kawasaki this season, as Jordan Szoke, the company’s sponsored Pro Superbike star, is badly injured. Szoke is still in a wheelchair, and seems unlikely to race this summer, although he is hoping to appear at this weekend’s Grand Bend race to sign autographs and interact with fans.
That’s right—the first race of the 2022 Canadian Superbike season, the Grand Bend opener, runs this weekend. And although Kawasaki’s lost its top Pro rider, it’s still in the CSBK game, offering contingency programs again this year across all classes. See the company’s presser below:
