Seventeen year old Canadian Superbike racer Brett McCormick goes out for a few 'easy laps' in early morning practise, at Calabogie Motorsports Park. After this practise session he arrived back in the pits to show off the scuffs on the elbows of his leathers. There's fast, and then there's scary fast.
