Crash.net's Top 10 BSB Riders – 1st

Leon Camier your 2009 BSB Rider of the Year
Who else could it be? Leon Camier has been voted your BSB Rider of the Year for 2009.

The young Briton may have carried the #2 on his Airwaves Yamaha, but he was rarely second best this season.

The 23-year-old won a record 19 of the 26 races and claimed 22 podiums for Airwaves Yamaha on his way to an end-of-season advantage of 136.5 points over team-mate James Ellison.

A further victory was taken from him, after comfortably winning on track, due to smoke emitting from his bike at Cadwell Park. That DSQ marked his only non-score of the season, which was his third in BSB and second with GSE Racing.

Camier's BSB achievements also caught the attention of Aprilia, for whom he will be a factory rider in the 2010 World Superbike Championship - having impressed during several solid rides as a wild-card at the tail-end of this season.

On average, you awarded Camier 9 out of 10 for his 2009 season, compared with 8 out of 10 for next best Stuart Easton. Camier was only sixth in last year's poll.
