Canadian Superbike: More From Season Opener At Calabogie

Liqui Moly MPG Fast Riding School Suzuki’s 18-year-old Alex Dumas made history with double Canadian Superbike race wins during the 2021 opening round of the series at Calabogie Motorsports Park, becoming the first rider in CSBK’s 42-year history to win in their Pro Superbike debut. The Quebec City, Quebec youngster won the 2018 MotoAmerica Junior Cup Championship on a KTM 390 at age 15; then won the 2019 MotoAmerica Twins Cup Championship on a Suzuki SV650 in his first try, at age 16; and competed in the 2020 MotoAmerica Stock 1000 and Superbike Cup Championships at age 17, finishing on the Stock 1000 podium before missing several races due to a broken elbow. He returned to Canada to compete in the CSBK Series for the first time this season.

“I was very excited to ride with my new competitors and I must admit that the competition level is very high,” said Alex. “Friday practice went very well but Saturday in qualifying I crashed due to an error on my part, still qualifying in fourth position. On Sunday afternoon I won both Superbike finals on my Liqui Moly MPG Fast Riding School Suzuki. I would like to thank all my sponsors, but especially my crew chief Patrice Goyette of MPG Moto.

“Thanks to all my supporters and sponsors, including Liqui Moly, MPG Moto, FAST Riding School, Suzuki Canada, SM Sport, VR St-Cyr, Hindle Exhaust, Öhlins USA,, T.A import, Furygan, Arai Helmet Americas, G2 Ergonomics, Domino Racing, TCX Boots, Vortex Racing, Attack Performance, Hotbodies Racing, BrakeTech USA, CL Brakes, Motovan, Team Hammer, and DSM body. It’s great to be racing in Canada and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.”
