Pro Bike Rider Ready to Ride After Broken Leg Healed During Off-Season
Now with his broken leg fully-healed, Dave Vandereyken will be ready for the opener of the Pro Bike
& Sled Series presented by Wiseco Performance Products for a full season of drag racing action.
We're ready to go, said the Pro Bike rider. I broke my leg late last year but it's fully healed.
I've got the motor freshened up and we're all set.
Vandereyken rides a 1982 Suzuki GS1100E which is powered by a 1540-cc engine, propelling him down
the quarter-mile in 8.5 seconds at 160 mph speeds. He qualified for five of the six PBSS events in
2011, sitting out the final with his broken leg. His best showing last year was a semi-final in the
series' first event.
The chassis on the Suzuki is basically stock, and uses a five-speed gearbox and incorporates a
Slider carburetor fuel system.
While Vandereyken does the riding, Louise Reid is the team's crew chief. Sponsorship comes from
Halton Power and Lowrider Sweeping, a Mississauga-based maintenance firm.
Vandereyken has only been racing since 2010, but said he is enjoying himself both on and off the
track in the PBSS.
I love it, he said of the series. It's been a blast. We've met a lot of new people and we're having
fun. I really enjoy it.
The PBSS presented by Wiseco Performance Products gets underway this year with the season-opening
Victoria Day Weekend Challenge at the Cayuga Dragway of Toronto Motorsports Park May 18-20.
The Pro Bike & Sled Series, www.PBSS.ca will race
six times in 2012. The series also competes with its two companion series, the Pro Modified Racing
Association, www.PMRA.ca and the Quick 32 Sportsman
Series, www.Quick32.ca offering a solid and full
package of drag racing action.
