Camier moving on up with double top five

A fourth and fifth place finish at Monza sees Camier lift himself three positions in the overall World Superbike standings
Leon Camier has risen to eighth in the World Superbike Championship standings after enjoying his best race day of the season at Monza.

While his fourth and fifth place finishes aren't quite as headline grabbing as he run to the podium last time out at Assen, his double finish does signal his largest points' haul at the end of a WSBK weekend.

Made all the more impressive by his lowly 13th place starting position, the results have enabled Camier to move ahead of Sylvain Guintoli, Michel Fabrizio and Cal Crutchlow in the overall standings.

"The weekend was positive. I started well in race 2 as well; too bad for the contact on the first Variante which made me lose some time against the leading group. I recovered, but a few too many mistakes kept me from closing the gap even though I gave it my all down to the end.

“I'm happy with the fourth place. I'm growing, I can feel it, and I know that we're ready to achieve important results. My compliments to Max for the two brilliant races".

Camier is now within sight of the battle for third in the standings, 38 points adrift of Jonathan Rea. Significantly though, it is a position he would likely be holding down by now had he not crashed out from good positions at both Valencia and Assen…

This kid is tuff as nails, the way he rides after these big get-offs. This was a good choice in aprilia. If he continues to ring that bikes neck the way he has, he will definately get a win before seasons end. He is one to watch every race weekend. Camier is my pick for the crown in 2011
