I like Camier and it is a shame that he had a rough 2011 but he put it on the podium a few times and I believe he has the pace... no excuses but his height could have played a factor with his pace on the compact RSV4. I think he will be good on the GSXR but really thought that on a Yamaha he would have done extremely well..if not won the title...
Anyway, an excellent signing for Crescent Suzuki as new commers to WSB...wonder who is team mate will be? I think Denning and Valentine are waiting for Hopper to finalize his plans. If Hopper gets his MGP ride then I believe they will grab Hill....

@ Dunga 8 and "DBL what"
I really like Haga too but he was too inconsistent on the Aprilia...then again so was Camier, both are excellent riders and given that Camier finished ahead of Haga also shows the equipment disparity..Camier finished ahead of Haga where he should with factory surprises there.
As a matter of fact, I hope Crescent Suzuki also considers Haga for the next spot....

Great to see Leon sticking around but im not expecting him to surpass what he did on the Aprilia...And Tommy Hill??? Hope he's not gonna be left treadin the boards in BSB for another year??

Yes Dunga8, treated equally! Don't forget the entire bike is built around Biaggi, I'm not saying it's all been towards Max, but it does seem a little Schumacher/ferrari.

Brilliant news! The past couple of years have done him no favours. The bike obviously didn't suit him and he was very definitely playing second fiddle to the wee-man. Has shown great potential with his race-craft, just needs to qualify and start better. Also, great credit to him for not using his glandular fever as an excuse - from experience, it is debilitating and can take a long time to recover from, if ever. Best of luck to him and I hope he can show the world the form he showed in BSB.

Who for the second seat? Hopper, Hill, MLav, Sykes, Byrne, would all be good choices.

Good news.

But you kind of fell it's 'p**s or get off the pot' time now for Leon.

Been too patchy and not shown any consistent relative improvement for the last two years - albeit with a bike that maybe did not suit him.

Good luck for 2012.

All Leon needs is a good bike! He showed how good he is when he walked away with the B.S.B. championship half way through the season just about!!! W.S.B. is going to be seriously good next year as I think Leon Camier will definately be up there with the best of them.
