Sandy, Michael and Carlos.

The Royal Distributing Racing Team opted for the second round of the RACE Superseries at Shannonville this past weekend, instead of the conflicting CSBK event in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia. The deciding factor was the long 14 hour drive necessary to get to Shubie. Rider Michael Leon finished on the podium in each of his three final races.

The most dramatic race of the weekend was Pro 600. Leon and Sean Huffman went at it, wheel to wheel, for the entire race, both riding equally matched CBR600RRs. Michael was leading the race until the final lap when Huffman attempted a last minute inside pass at the end of the Shannonville straight.

Huffman won, Bailey was second and Michael finished third. Read more…
