Szoke wins CSBK St–Eustache

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Brantford’s Jordan Szoke (BMW Motorrad / Mopar Express Lane BMW S1000RR) has made it two in a row this season with his win last Sunday at Autodrome St–Eustache in St–Eustache, Quebec. 

The nine-time Canadian Superbike champion took the lead on lap three of the shortened 10-lap race (red-flagged due to a rain-related crash) and went on to win by a 6.477-second margin ahead of current CSBK champ Jodi Christie (Accelerated Technologies / Honda Canada CBR1000RR SP). Sebastien Tremblay (MotoNation / CrossFit Laval Kawasaki ZX-10R) finished third. 

“It’s a great start to the season but it’s a long way from over,” said Szoke. “I didn’t really go out to try and win the race. The conditions were tough and I’m in a championship battle with Jodi, so he was my big concern.”

Louie Raffa took the win in Pro Sport Bike ahead of Jodi Christie, while Darren James rounded out the podium.
