Dumas Dominates Calabogie CSBK T he Canadian Super- bike Championship visited Calabogie Motor- sports Park, July 9-10, where Alex Dumas put himself right back into the championship hunt after winning both Saturday and Sunday's races. Du- mas is now just one point down on championship leader Ben Young. Young started off the weekend with the early lead in Saturday's Su- perbike race. The BMW rider shot off the line and led the pack through the first five turns before Dumas, on the Liqui Moly/Fast School Suzuki, slipped past and dropped the hammer. Dumas went on to win with Young taking second. "I didn't get the best start, but I got a bet- ter launch out of three and I was able to outbrake Ben into five," Dumas said. "From there I just tried to put in a bunch of good laps and rode a really good race to the end." Kawasaki rider Sebastien Tremblay was third, followed by Samuel Guerin (BMW) and Michael Leon (BMW). In Sunday's race two, Young got out in front early again, but this time put up a good fight until again giving away to Dumas at the halfway point. Dumas pulled away and went on to take his second win of the weekend. "I tried the pass a few times, but Ben just kept slamming the door," said Dumas. "It was really fun battling out there, but I'm happy to pick up another win for the championship." "I had another great launch like yesterday—the new 'M' BMW gets off the line really well—but Alex was a demon off the line as well which allowed him to stay with me," said the Van Dolder's Home Team BMW rider. "I knew it would be tough to win here, but we're really looking forward to round three where we can hopefully build the gap back up in the championship." Trevor Daley, on the One- Speed Suzuki, filled out Sun- day's podium. Tremblay was fourth and Guerin fifth. CN SUPERBIKE RACE 1 1. Alex Dumas (Suz) 2. Ben Young (BMW) 3. Sebastien Tremblay (Kaw) 4.
