"I don't think we ever saw the best of Leon, due to some unfortunate injuries, but if points were awarded for dedication to get back to full fitness then he would have been 2013 World Champion!" - Paul Denning.

Sh1t, i like Camier an still think he could be world champion, hope he gets a good ride in the Worlds somehow, need to get hold of a Kawasaki really as seems the most user friendly fast bike about. To good for BSB.

Have to say I am gutted for him. He has had some awful injuries this year trying to get that extra few mph from the Suzuki. Am hoping that he will get a competitive ride in WSBK and it would be nice if Yamaha returned to the championship.
Have to say honour has been lost as Leon Camier shook hands on a deal a few weeks ago...shame on you Paul Denning.

Bit hypocritical of Mr Denning if that is true. He sure made a fuss about Guintolli allegedly doing the same thing to him a few years ago.
Fingers crossed Leon can find a good competitive ride somewhere, somehow. You don't dominate BSB like he did and then become utterly useless.

Why the fuss? Regardless of how nice Leon is as a person, and he seems personable, it's all about his riding.

He crashes a lot.

Leon had his chance with works Aprilia's for TWO years with only 5 3rd place finishes to his name.

Compare that to Eugene. I know if I was a team manager who I would sign.

Tel: So hes the only rider who falls off?
TheTrueDrBob. Would like to know how many championships and races you have won.? The fact that they have signed different riders is a side issue. They shook on a deal and then renaged on it is the main issue for me. Especially with a British team manager.
Also think Andy Walker has been too quiet, what happened and who is he talking to?
I am backing Leon 100% to prove people wrong, just look at what Tom Sykes has achieved after a few dodgy years!!

Come on boys, if you were PD and you were given the choice of Camier or Laverty you would obviously go for the latter.
Racing is all about winning and Laverty is on-form and winning (lots of) races. When did Camier last do that?
Camier might be a nice guy and suffered lots of injuries and all that but a team manager has to make the hard-headed choice of which riders are available and likely to make the best use of the kit.
In Denning's place I would have made the same call.
