Godspeed, Yvon Duhamel
We were sad to learn of the passing of a legendary Canadian racer, the great Yvon Duhamel. A name that every Canadian motorcyclist (and so many all over the world) should know. Inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame 2007, and into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame as well as the Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1999, his bio on the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame is a must read https://canadianmotorcyclehalloffame.ca/inductees/2007/yvon-duhamel.
We also have a great story, written by Bar, about a phenomenal race he had against Yvon in 2001 that is a fun read The day I almost beat Yvon Duhamel.
One of Yvon's famous race bikes is featured in Motorcycle Mojo's series on the Bar Hodgson Collection also featured here on our site. Read about it and see the photos Yvon Duhamel's bike.
