Port Perry, Ontario (May 31, 2017) - The opening round of the 2017 Canadian Superbike Series(CSBK) took place this past weekend (May 26-28) at Shannonville Motorsport Park in Shannonville, Ontario.
"Everybody's taking it 100 percent seriously, and we're running at a very high level of competition, and that's what I'm here for," says Szoke. "I feel great. I'm comfortable. I feel like I have nothing to prove like when you're younger, so I'm just trying to enjoy it, and it's taken a bit of pressure off me so I can focus on riding well."
In the exciting Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike race, Hindle rider Tomas Casas, on the Peterborough Cycle/Hindle/Yamaha YZF-R6, powered to the front to get the top spot on the podium in his first ever Pro win. Casas had just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Italy attending the VR46 Master Camp, where he was mentored by Valentino Rossi. Kristopher Garvie (Kawasaki ZX-6R) came in a close second, followed by Mitch Card (YZF-R6) in third.
"I knew Garvie wasn't going to pull away, so I just tucked in and behind him, settled, and played the waiting game. Once I found the right moment, I made my pass and just pushed hard to the end. It was my first Pro win, and it couldn't have been any better." said Casas.
