Camier doubles up at Thruxton

Easton kept a watching brief in fourth to consolidate his third position in the standings, while Rutter ended a successful first outing on the Worx Crescent Suzuki in fifth, the ex-Rob Mac Yamaha rider no doubt very well placed to assume Sylvain Guintoli's place in the team until his return.

Andrews held on for sixth for both his and the MSS Colchester Kawasaki's best weekend this season, while Richards and Ian Lowry got the better of Karl Harris in the closing stages, the Hydrex rider having endured an off whilst attempting to pass Andrews.

Julien Da Costa completed his second top ten of the day, ahead of John Laverty, Gary Mason – again let down by his start – Graeme Gowland, Martin Jessopp and Peter Hickman.

I was at Thruxton today and Leon looked a different rider on the Yamaha than on the Ducati. I thought he looked really aggressive and looked like he was flicking it in to corners hard - harder than anyone else in the field. (I thought its was very similar to how Spies looks and rides). When Ellison tried to match him, his bike just span up and weaved.. If he continues to ride like this , I can see no reason why he wont be BSB champ at the end of the year. I hope Airwaves do Donington as it would be interesting to see how Camier and Spies compare..

go easy on Karl he is just unlucky like at Donington when he came off there was a bit of oil on the track and of course who had 2 find it only Karl. if he was not so well built he would not be able to take those falls, if he didnt have bad luck he have no luck at all. ya im hopeing for Leon at Donington and hopein Sykes can find some speed there that will set him up for the rest of the season.
