Duncan, BC, hosted a historic supermoto race through city streets on July 15 to celebrate the city’s 100th anniversary.
Victoria Supermoto president Calvin van Elsakker credits the event’s success to the many volunteers that lent a hand at the race and said, “It was amazing how the local riding community rallied around this event and came out to support Victoria Supermoto.” The Duncan Centennial Street Challenge drew in 45 riders and around 1500-2000 spectators.
“It was a plan that at (one) time was just a ‘wouldn’t it be cool to do’ sort of thing. It’s when the ball got rolling in my head. Then Don Hatten called me and said he wanted us to come up and race on the Sunday and be part of the Duncan centennial celebration.”
CSBK XR1200 series champ (and current points leader) Steve Crevier showed up to take part in the action, as did former road racer Oliver Jervis. Crevier showed that his raw talent transfers over to supermoto as well, winning the Pro/Expert class. In addition to the race, the weekend was made even more exciting by musicians, the Show and Shine and Poker Run, as well as appearances by Maxim models and North American Stunt Riding Champion Insane Kane Friesen.
