The biggest surprise… Amazing battle… He worked hard… He’s perfect in every situation… Nobody believed their eyes… He’s doing remarkably well… He’s incredible… There’s a magic in his riding…
It’s all about Sam.
Just comments during his unforgettable race at Final 5th Round of Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship.
August 18-20, 2017.
Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. Canadian Motorsport Park.
It was the best racing weekend in his second-year Pro career. And the first front row Pro Superbike start in his life.
Everything started on Friday, at qualifying sessions for the final round of races. He did the best qualifying performance in his career with the second fastest time of 1:20:832 on his BLYSK Racing/Neuroperforma BMW S1000RR.
Next success: Saturday.
Samuel was very quick. Fast–but not furious. He took the lead on the opening lap and kept it for the next 17 laps. He lost the first position having only 2 more laps to go. He pushed Jordan Szoke very hard in these last moments. Finally, he finished in a second place, just after Szoke, setting the fastest lap (his 3rd lap) of the race. This gave him not only a podium–his first-ever podium as a Pro–but also a privilege to start from a pole on Sunday race – which was „the most unusual occurrence in the Szoke era“ (csbk.ca)
Last race: Sunday.
Sam completed the race with another podium in third.
This remarkable final round made him jump to 4th place in the overall Mopar Pro Superbike standings.
We will see Sam surely on the podium in first. Cause he has dreams. And he works hard to make them true. So they will be true!
