NEWS: Leon On the Podium at Calabogie!

Thursday, July 30, 2020

To make a long story short:

The global pandemic has forced the country into isolation and has caused the cancellation of professional sports around the world. CSBK was not exempt and the first 4 planned CSBK events of the 2020 schedule could not take place. CSBK and Pro 6 Cycle Trackdays found a way to hold a single day, double header event, without spectators, at Calabogie Motorsports Park on July 25th, in order to help salvage the Canadian National Superbike racing season. Some racers came out to race, others did not. Royal Distributing stepped up to the plate with continued support for Michael Leon and his BMW Superbike Team to be able to compete on the new 2020 K67 S1000RR BMW. The team rose to the occasion! Michael qualified 2nd, and finished 3rd in the first race, thus becoming the first Canadian racer to score a podium on the new S1000RR model. Unfortunately, an electrical error code forced the team out of 4th place in the second race. More racing in 2020 at Canadian Tire Motosport Park may be on the horizon for CSBK. Officials are working hard to make it happen. Read more…

NEWS: Unfulfilled Potential

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Good day,

2019 has been a difficult season for me and members of our small team. A season of unfulfilled potential. Our trip to Mosport, now known as Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, was no different. Read more…

NEWS: Well, That Didn’t Go As Planned

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Good day Everybody,

The 1200 km drive home from Shunenacadie to Montreal tends to seem even longer when the weekend doesn’t turn out as well as expected.

It was an exciting and crazy double header weekend and I wish we could have a do-over. I crashed out of third place in Saturday’s race and rode cautiously to 6th place in the wet but drying conditions during Sunday’s race. Read more…

NEWS: Goodbye Autodrome St Eustache

Thursday, June 27, 2019

Hello,

On Sunday, we said goodbye to Autodrome St Eustache. The track, in operation for decades, held its last ever National motorcycle race this past weekend, June 23rd. I rode the Royal Distributing BMW S1000RR to a 6th place finish in Pro Superbike after a good battle. I rode reasonably well, but my pace was off a little bit from where it needed to be to fight for the podium.

It’s a real shame that the track will close, a victim of the expanding suburban landscape. This venue is the place that I truly learned how to race, while competing in the Am lightweight and then Am 600 classes with the ASM organization during the mid nineties. I could fill pages of this newsletter with memories of learning the ropes, competing in endurance races, winning championships, crashing out of the lead, setting lap records, and all kinds of crazy track adventures. I crashed my FZR 400 so hard once, that my Dad and I never found the battery. It’s probably still buried in the outfield. Even though it wasn’t a great track as far as the layout and track surface, I’m going to miss the Autodrome. It’s sad to say goodbye. Read more…

CSBK Round 2 Race Report: Pressure Makes Diamonds

Good day everyone,

Finally, our team managed to get through a race weekend with a solid finish! It has been a while. During the second round of the MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship held at Grand Bend Motorplex on June 9th, I rode the Royal Distributing S1000RR BMW to 5th place. It was a breakthrough of sorts for us. I was able to lay down some fast lap times, very comparable with the front runners, WITHOUT throwing the bike down the road. Read more…

NEWS: If It Was Easy, Everyone Would Do It!

Hello Everyone,

I’ve decided to try writing my race reports in the first person this season. A little less formal and a little more personal. Here we go.

Except for the final result, the season opener, held this past weekend, May 21st at Shannonville was an amazing weekend for our team. I was able to find out that I do want to continue racing and that I’m still fast! Going into the weekend I wasn’t sure about either. Read more…
