BMW’s Brett McCormick recently won the 2011 Canadian Superbike Championship for the first time in his career thanks to a decisive victory on Saturday, August 20th. For those who didn’t see the historic event unfold, Brett battled and passed Team Kawasaki’s Jordan Szoke in the last turn resulting in a 0.53-sec victory. This is the first time BMW has won a Super Bike Championship as well. A great present for his 20th birthday, don’t you think? Congratulations!

“I couldn’t have planned a better birthday party,” said Brett, who celebrated his 20th birthday on Saturday, August 20th. “Clinching the title with a win was epic! With such a huge points lead I could have cruised around for the title, but that’s not how I wanted to do it. The fans come out to see the riders do their best and put on a great show and that’s what they got!”.

Brett’s first Superbike title was the culmination of a lot of hard work and an awesome motorcycle. “I’ve got to thank Chris Duff and Norm Wells for having faith in giving me this chance with BMW. The BMW S1000RR is an amazing machine, and with Patrice Goyette building and setting it up for me, we showed what it was capable of. I also have to thank Scott Cameron, Richard Jackson, and Dave Pcenicni, Shauna Duff, Mike and Cindy Ferreira, Roger and Mathieu Goyette and everyone who helped out or pitched in this year. Huge thanks to trainer Jason Weber for making me a machine. Also a big shout out to Shoei Helmets and Joe Rocket Canada for the safest and most comfortable protection out there!”
