On Sunday, August 3, Jordan Szoke, the nine-time and defending Canadian Superbike Champion and the defending Canadian National Observed Trials Champion, suffered multiple fractures of his right thumb.

Szoke had surgery later that night at Royal Victoria Hospital, in Barrie, Ontario, at the hands of Dr. Kennith Dickie. In the surgery, Dr. Dickie pinned fractures of Szoke’s proximal phalange bone and his distal phalange bone, according to Szoke’s wife Amy.

Szoke is scheduled to have a follow-up appointment Thursday in Ontario. After that appointment Szoke will decide whether he will try to ride or not at the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship doubleheader finale this coming weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (a.k.a. Mosport), according to a press release issued Tuesday.

Szoke, who rides a Mopar Express Lane/BMW Motorrad S1000RR, currently leads the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship by 13 points.
