Szoke third in BMW Motorrad Race Trophy standings

BMW Motorrad Race Trophy: Riders from Canada and Spain move to the fore

BMW Motorrad privateers were once again victorious on various continents last weekend. Jordan Szoke (CA) tasted success in the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK), while Ivan Silva Alberola (ES) and Daniel Rivas Fernandez (ES) finished one-two for BMW in the Superbike class of the Spanish Motorcycle Championship (CEV). In the World Superbike Championship, Sylvain Barrier (FR) returned to form after a long injury to claim an emphatic victory in the EVO class.

BMW Motorrad Race Trophy: Szoke and Silva Alberola on the up.

The battle at the top of the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy remains exciting this week. Cyril Brunet-Lugardon (FR) and Emilien Jaillet (FR) from the French Superbike Championship (FSBK) are level on points at the top of the standings. Both have 143.00 Race Trophy points to their name. In the case of a tie, the number of race wins is decisive: as Brunet-Lugardon has won once more than his compatriot Jaillet this season, he is classed as the leader. However, the chasing pack continue to take every opportunity to pick up points and, as the race calendars are completely different in the individual championships, major changes are afoot every week in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy standings.

One man who took full advantage of the opportunity to score Race Trophy points this weekend was Canada’s Jordan Szoke. He lined up at the second round of the Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK) in St. Eustache (CA). As at the season-opener in Shannonville (CA), Szoke was unbeatable on his BMW S 1000 RR. He claimed both pole position and the win in St. Eustache. This not only saw Szoke extend his lead in the CSBK, but also significantly increased his points tally in the Race Trophy. He has now climbed to third overall with 129.00 points.

Level on points (129.00), but with one win fewer to his name, is the new fourth-placed man Ivan Silva Alberola (ES). He races in the Superbike class of the Spanish Motorcycle Championship (CEV). The fifth round of the season in this series was held in Albacete (ES), and BMW had plenty to cheer about. BMW Motorrad not only claimed its first win of the season in Sunday’s second race, but also achieved a one-two. Cheered on by his entire family, Silva Alberola came home first on the BMW S 1000 RR fielded by Targobank Motorsport to move into the overall lead in the CEV Riders’ Championship. Daniel Rivas Fernandez (ES / Easyrace Superbike) crossed the line second to complete the BMW one-two. Rivas Fernandes was fourth in race one, with Silva Alberola behind him in fifth place.
