Christie pips Szoke in Shubie shootout

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Jodie Christie (Jodi Christie Racing / Honda Canada / Accelerated Technologies) claimed his first Pro Superbike victory of the season in thrilling fashion last Sunday when the Canadian Superbike series visited Atlantic Motorsport Park in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia. 

The 22-year-old had a solid start and took an early lead, though defending CSBK champion Jordan Szoke (Waznie Racing / BMW Motorrad / Mopar Express Lane) kept things close for the first 17 laps. Szoke then made a pass on lap 18, with Christie returning the favour late on lap 21. Szoke again took the lead on the last lap and looked to have the race in the bag. But Christie made a daring move on the final corner and got a good drive to the line, narrowly beating out Szoke by 0.109 seconds. Franklyn Dominguez (OCM Motor Sports / egopay.com) rounded out the podium, finishing 36.087 seconds back. 

Trevor Daley took the win in Pro Sport Bike, beating out Kristopher Garvie by 2.102 seconds. Caleb Noiles finished third, 2.935 seconds back.
