Better late than never—CSBK finale an opportunity for Trevor Daley to get back in the saddle of his OneSpeedInc Suzuki to end the season in style.
The difference between a good life and a bad life, said Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung, is how well you walk through the fire. And Trevor Daley, as anyone who knows him can attest to, is a master fire-walker.
After a washed-out Shubenacadie weekend put him in hospital with a broken leg and hip—and, heartbreakingly, caused him to miss the Canadian Tyre Motorsport Park round—Trevor has been on a mission to rehabilitate. Fuelling his journey has been the outpouring of support from friends and fans, and the understanding from team partners who appreciate the severity of Trevor’s injuries and what he’s done to be ready for this coming weekend’s event at Shannonville Motorsport Park, just east of Belleville, ON.
Of course, Trevor, as the grittiest man in motorcycle racing, didn’t need anything other than the fire within to prepare for this coming weekend. Seven weeks of intense training has Trevor’s fitness back on track, but of course rejoining the series regulars who have end-of-season form will test Trevor’s mettle. Trevor enters the weekend with two objectives. The first goal is a return to the podium, and the second is to accrue enough points so that he and fellow Suzuki rider Alex Dumas can clinch, for the second straight year, the manufacturers’ championship for Suzuki.
