Default DuHamel to race Daytona 200

Looks like DuHamel will be riding a Suzuki GSXR600 in the Daytona 200. He'll be riding for the Blackfoot Suzuki team from Calgary, Alberta. That's in CANADA if you aren't up on your geography.

Awesome! DuHamel has ridden some amazing 200's. Yet another reason to go.

Was wondering what he had up his sleave, didnt think he was just going to sit back and take it all in. No articles even mentioned Duhamel and where hed end up. albeit a great racer, I think his time has come and gone, but I hope he does well.

He's made good money as a pro. With wise money management I bet he could run two full season's on purse money and live comfortablely. Glas to see he's on the track. Would have been cool to see him race the Buell's, though.

Are you sure he is in the 200, or is he in the wheelchair race before the 200 starts??

DuHamel races better with broken limbs than most riders at full strength. It will be nice seeing him compete on a privateer bike. Almost bet he'll be in the top 5 most of the day.

Come on LR, It's not that bad. Miguel was doomed at the end of the season. Too old to race a Corse bike (before the Factory blow up), but not old enough to retire. I know deep down you want to be a believer. Just wait until they get to Infineon and re-evaluate. If the racing isn't closer and more exciting I'll stop cheerleading for the season (yeah- like that's going to happen). LOL!!!
