A PODIUM FOR LESIEUR AT THE 1ST ROUND OF THE PARTS CANADA NATIONAL (ICAR, MIRABEL)
ICAR, located near Mirabel, QC, hosted the first round of Superbike Canadian Championship last weekend. Geneviève Lesieur attended and was competing in the Women’s Canadian Championship (WCC) as well as in the Pro600 race.

The WCC race took place before the Pro600 and Geneviève was third on the grid. Although she wanted to keep her stamina for the Pro600 race, she knew she still had to perform at her best in the WCC race as the competition is quite fierce. In spite of a mediocre start, Geneviève managed to hold on to her third place spot. Caught behind the second-placed rider for a few laps, she finally managed to overtake her and started to chase down the race leader… but it was too little, too late, though, as the leader had too much of a lead to mount a challenge. Nevertheless, Geneviève got the second spot on the podium at ICAR.

Not long after the WCC’s podium ceremony, Geneviève was on track for the Pro600 race. She managed a rocket-fast start, speeding down the front straight and handling her bike deftly in the curves. However, another racer bumped into Geneviève’s bike, ripping the fairing off of it and running over her foot. With all the adrenaline pumping in her blood, she didn't feel the pain and pushed on. As the two racers entered turn two, Geneviève tried to slow down but realized that the bike’s shifter did not survive the last lap’s incident!

By then the pain in her foot was so intense that Geneviève was forced to stop near the edge of the track, in a safe spot, instead of going back to the pit. The ambulance was dispatched to her rescue… Fortunately, nothing was broken! Relieved by the news, she took advantage of the red flag to effect repairs on the bike. She managed to be ready on time but had to take the restart from the last spot on the grid. Geneviève still managed to pulverize last year’s personal best laptime by 3.4 seconds on the second lap as well as beat her best lap of the weekend by 1.3 seconds.

Unfortunately, Geneviève had to abandon mid-race, as she could not maintain a good rhythm and continue to push her bike to the limit. All in all, she is quite satisfied with the weekend’s results. A second spot on the podium, much better lap times than last year's, the sun and the cheering crowd: Geneviève had a blast and is more than impatient to be on track for the next round!
