Incredible. Give the lad respect for that because that crash at Cadwell the other year could have ended his career. Onwards and upwards, and I'm hoping Leon becomes our new WSBK and GP hope in the future. As long as someone gets him a decent ride, otherwise it could ruin him like its done to JT!

He is on fire at the minute but without knocking him all his major rivals have been or are injured/banned so this has helped him record a few more wins . Having said that he didnt do any testing at the start of the year . I think that this year everything has clicked for him . Will be interesting what his plans are for next year

I think Camier has done brilliant and remember his team mate has done moto gp and Camier has wiped the floor with him.
Can someone help me,im confused.Reading this article it seems as though this is the last round,so if Camier is 75.5 points ahead with only 3 races left(so thats a maximum of 75pts)does that already make him the Champion???

Taking nothing away from Leon's ability, he's not had much opposition this year. Other than Guintoli, Brookes and Hill,who the hell else is there to compete against. And those three, well Guintoli and Brookes have never been to England. Guintoli injured, Brookes (well where do we start) immigration problems, brain fade etc. Hill coming back from terrible time in WSBK. So all in all he should be winning. He's in a class all of his own against this years BSB lineup. Crutchlow, Rea, Kiyo, Sykes, Lavilla, Byrne all missing. It's just not the same Championship. Even though it's still exciting, it's more like a good Super Stock championship. :-o

Good Luck Leon!

However, you have to look at the fact that all the big guns from last year went to WSBK. Otherwise, Camier would have been competing against Haslam, Byrne, Rea, Sykes and Curtchlow and i personally dont think he'd have had it this easy if they'd all been there.

Full credit to him though, you have to be the best rider on the day in this competition, and he has been consistenly throughout the season

They did say at the end of last year that it would be Camier's year this year. But was that down to lack of opposition or his undoubted skill as a racer? But as his team boss says, consistency wins the championship.

Hopefully next year he will move up to World level and we will see within a few seasons how good he really is.

i think he should go up against Hill next year and who ever wins out of them two should go onto bigger and better things ( i dont think it will be Camier )
