Airwaves Yamaha prepare for first match point

GSE Racing head to the latest round of the MCE British Superbike Championship at Cadwell Park on the verge of mathematically wrapping up a fifth title.

Leon Camier's record-breaking triple victory at Brands Hatch has moved him 156.5 points ahead of the nearest non-Airwaves Yamaha rider, that being Hydrex Honda's Stuart Easton in third position.

Should Camier score more than 21 points than his Scottish rival, the riders' title will be decided between himself and team-mate James Ellison.

"This season has been incredible, and hopefully our good form will continue at Cadwell Park. I'd like to try and put my fall from a couple of years ago firmly behind me with some good results.

"It's been a busy couple of weeks since the last race at Brands Hatch. I've been training as usual, but also taking part in some races of a slightly different sort. Last week I entered the 'Surrey League Revolutions 5-day cycle race'.

“Around 80 of Britain's top riders take part and cover around 100 miles a day, as well as climbing some of the steepest hills in South East England. It was great to be pushing myself against some of the top cyclists and actually be amongst it. But I'm looking forward to getting back on my Airwaves Yamaha this weekend!"

Ellison, meanwhile, heads to Cadwell Park eager to keep his fading title hopes alive having drifted 113.5 points from Camier.

"I didn't race at Cadwell Park last year due to injury, and so I want to make up for it on the Airwaves Yamaha. It's a circuit I really enjoy, and I think we should put on a good show for the fans.

"Since the last Round, I stayed down in Kent for a while as we had an event with the GSE Group. The event itself was great fun, but it also gave me the opportunity to do some training in the sunshine for once, plus have a chance to relax with the team on the golf course.

“Since then I've gone back to my normal training routine back at home, plus I've managed to sort out a brand new motor home. A good couple of weeks, but I can't wait to get back racing."

Well Binza, u obviously don't know me so why r u so quick to judge? I played 9 holes and the last time I played was for charity over a year ago. Not that I should have to explain to u but every day before and after that as usual I train my ass off once or twice a day just like anyone else in this sport who lives and breaths it. These interviews are for the public to share with us what we get up to when we are not racing or training because that's generally what we do most of the time so try not to read too far into them.

Well call me pedantic, but can you BREAK a record when its the first time its happened? I'd have thought he established a record which will be hard to match... 3 out of 3 won't even be breakable. As for the golf slight on Ellison - Have you *seen* a Cumbrian golf course? Bloke'll need climbing boots and probably ropes. The only flat bit's where they put Sellafield.
