Dumas finishes 13th in Loudon Classic

Former Bridgestone Canadian Superbike champion Alex Dumas completed his first ever trip to the historic Loudon Classic on Saturday, finishing 13th out of 51 entries in the 101st annual running of the event.

The cash-prize race – which takes place at New Hampshire Motor Speedway – featured numerous top MotoAmerica stars, including Hayden Gillim, Bobby Fong, Stefano Mesa, and the M4 Suzuki teammates of Tyler Scott and Teagg Hobbs, amongst others.

Dumas was unofficially third-fastest in Thursday’s first day of action at Loudon, before qualifying tenth on Friday aboard his MPG/Liqui Moly Suzuki. Notably, Dumas was the only rider in the field listed on Bridgestone tires.

The Quebec City native was slightly outgunned aboard his GSX-R600, with most of the frontrunners opting for the higher-displacement GSX-R750, but managed to limit the damage on Saturday as he claimed 13th in the final order and one spot ahead of MotoAmerica Baggers champion Tyler O’Hara.

Dumas will take home $4,500 for his efforts, part of a roughly $240,000 USD purse. Gillim would win the event by just over a second from pole-sitter Scott, earning the $55,000 grand prize.

The 21-year-old confirmed at Loudon that he stepped away from the CSBK paddock in 2024 partly to focus on the race in New Hampshire, though it remains to be seen what his plans are for the future following the event.
