Been watching Leon come up through the ranks for the past few years. I agree - superb talent for the future, our brightest hope, you might say.
Once he gets his head round the bike, he'll worry most of the top guys this year & challenge for the title next year.

No doubt everyone in this series is quick but I don't see how crashing after 8 laps in both races helps him to be the next best thing. Where is he in the champipnship and where is his team mate...

like many has said its easier learn fast guy from crashing than make slow guy fast. that said I think Leon will be weapon like Lorenzo who kept crashing in his first motogp season.

the boy is class, you don't win that many races in one season unless there is some real natural talent. i am certainly no expert but the prilla a different animal from the r1 so of course there are going to be a few finding the limits days, (some inside and some over ie this weekend) but i would rather he pushed all the time than spent his first season learning the circuits, finding a good base set up, blah blah then get forgotten about. its a dog eat eat world so even 8 laps in the front is better than fumbling around mid pack ! imho :)

he has got the race pace wiv the front runners,, as its said that he needs good superpole time to get in the front two rows to make it rite in the front runners, i have to agree,, which he did in the sec race dispite on 7th on the grid after red flaged its just to show that's where he needs to be as he went straight in first place after couple corners, he had all 3 cracking starts, but really gutted he came off, he could well be the underdog after the bettings have slash from 34 to 12 :-o

I am a really big Leon Haslam fan.Originally because i folloewed his uncle Phil and then his dad Ron but over the years he has impressed me in his own right.Right now He is the one i would go for to win.But Leon Camier what a talent this guy is and armed with that Aprillia the first big name who will really suffer is Max Biaggi Leon Camier will beat Biaggi at Assen.Not sure if he will beat Leon Haslam but they will be the stand out riders at Assen and possibly for the rest of the season.Jonny Rea could even complete the podium.I will probably get some stick for this but thats how i see it.What do think "mystic meg" :)

@ mofo you seem to have a very short sighted view of how leon Camier is doing.The guy caught and past Max Biaggi who is seen as one of the best riders in the world ever.Give the guy a break he is finding his limit and the bikes limit.And before he can do either he has to find out exactly what he can and can't do with the bike.And the only way he is going to do that is by going fast.If he was going slow and crashing then he would have a problem.But at the moment you are the one with the problem of not been able to see a great rider in the making.
