ROADRACING WORLD - Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship To Be Televised on Canada's TSN
TORONTO, Ont. (February 17, 2016) – Action from the Mopar Canadian National Superbike Championship will be televised on Canada’s Sports Leader, TSN, in 2016.
Each of the seven rounds will be shown in a half-hour episode and each episode will consist of the Pro Superbike feature race, along with support event highlights. The programs will be shown as soon as the weekend following each national round.
“It is a real treat to be able to bring the excitement of Canadian motorcycle road racing to TSN,” said CSBK Executive Producer Michael Taylor of Multiple Media Entertainment. “This opportunity will bring our sport to a wider viewing audience and should create new fans of the series, while at the same time making the championship even more accessible to our existing fan base.”
Canada’s premier motorcycle road racing series made its debut on TSN in 1995.
Most recently the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship has been available on the official series website, www.csbk.ca, which over the past three years has provided full video coverage of the Pro Superbike and Pro Sport Bike races
Long-time voice of the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship and experienced motorcycle journalist Frank Wood will handle the race call on the TSN broadcasts. Senior Producer and Editor Judah Purcell, also a video veteran of the series, will lead the on-site team. On-site production will come from Professional Motorsports Productions, broadcaster of the series for the past 21 seasons.
“Judah and his team bring tremendous experience and enthusiasm to the video coverage of our series,” said Wood, a former professional flat tracker racer who has called races across North America in his storied career. “Their packaging of the sport is sure to make instant fans of TSN viewers and will help grow the sport of motorcycle road racing across the country.”
Complete, lap by lap, Pro Superbike and Pro Sport Bike races will again be shown on the official CSBK site this season, and will be made available shortly after TSN’s coverage.
