SHUBENACADIE, N.S. – Jodi Christie scored his second consecutive win at Atlantic Motorsport Park in spectacular fashion in the third round of the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship on Sunday.
The Keene, Ont. rider made a last lap, last corner pass of Jordan Szoke to snatch a 0.109-sec. victory on his Jodi Christie Racing / Honda Canada / Accelerated Technologies Honda CBR1000RR. The win was Christie’s first of the season and set up a dramatic finish to the season at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in three weeks time, with Christie now within 13 points of Szoke in the standings.
“I’m so happy to be up here again,” said the 22-year-old Christie, who finished second to Szoke in the opening two races of the 2014 season. “It’s almost a relief. I feel I’ve had the best bike all year and just failed to execute for the team. So this is like redemption for me.”
Christie completed the 22-lap race around the 2.56km (1.6-mile) AMP circuit in 25 minutes, 33.871 seconds for an average speed of 132.183km/h (79.310 mph).
