One of the best races I have ever witnessed in person was at Steel City in 2010 when CP and Canard battled it out both motos.

If I remember right that was also Windhams last national win.

Met him at San Diego Petco Park in 2016, super nice dude. His style on the bike is something I try to emulate every time I ride.

Don't ever let facts get in the way of a great story

You would be correct. He won Moto 1 and placed 2nd in Moto 2 for the overall. A great day indeed.

Merci pour les souvenirs, champion!

Awesome rider, would pay to watch him ride alone.. Congrats on a great career.

I really hope he takes a break, then give it a go in Endurocross a little later on like he's mentioned before, I think it would be great to see him in a more laid back and fun atmosphere. Regardless of what he chooses to do though, you really can't say anything but congratulations on a great career! Guy has done damn near everything there is to do, and done it with a style that definitely influenced my own riding and I'm sure many others.

I remember a few summers back watching the practice live stream, as it was so damn cool to see him sneak out the fast lap right at the end pretty much every week. I'd watch Bagget and go "there's no way anyone can hit that corner faster", and then I'd watch CP go what looked like about half as fast, and still edge him out speed wise. Learned a valuable lesson that just because a style looks fast doesn't always necessarily mean it is, there's a lot more to it.

Great Rider, Great Carreer, Great Decision-

This guy has a very bright future in the industry if he so chooses. His creativity on the track is a lost art.

If this guy ever did a school, I’d be all over it.

The fastest I've ever seen anyone take a corner was CP on a 250 in practice at St. Louis. Cruised around most of the session, then uncorked one section out of nowhere and hit a 90 degree right hander after a triple so fast that my friend and I both said "holy shit!" out loud. Loved watching him ride!

CP did some strange things on and off the track at times. I think some folks were turned off by those decisions.

BUT when you put them in proper context, they all made perfect sense. Some people said he expected too much of his team and bikes and held out for bigger paydays than he should have. Well, if you got paralyzed racing motocross, you would do the same thing. He was racing to make a living and he was on the receiving end of the worst our sport can offer... He wanted to be paid well if he was going to go out there and risk his life again. Plus, he had the results at times to back up those salary and equipment demands. He also pulled out of races or wouldn't push the ragged edge on certain days when he wasn't feeling it. Again, he got paralyzed on a dirt bike. He knew better than ANYONE what the risks were. When you aren't feeling it one day and you weigh the risk vs reward, his opinion on it is different than most. It happened to him. It went as bad as it could once.

So I always had a soft spot and a lot of respect for CP. He's like a really weird, French, Doug Henry in some aspects. laughing

He probably saw the Jeff Alessi thread and decided to pull the trigger before shit hit the fan.

(KIDDING!)
