Tim Hortons is the largest quick service restaurant chain in Canada and it’s the first pit-stop on the way to work for myself and most Canadians. It’s an honour to represent such an iconic brand.”

Bolduc, a former Canadian Superbike road racer himself commented on Tim Hortons –Sudbury rejoining the BYR team as the Primary Sponsor for the Daytona 200: “Ben had a few glitches during last year’s event but he rode a strong mature race and showed the kind of determination and composure that it takes to win. Ben and the BYR team did an astounding job of representing the Tim Hortons brand last season and he’s now aligned with some very supportive companies and people to help further his progress this season.”
