Camier shines with new personal best

Camier strengthens his status as the top rookie in this season's World Superbike Championship as he finishes fourth and second at Miller Motorsports Park.
Leon Camier is now just one step away from winning a World Superbike Championship race in his rookie season after scoring another personal best with a run to second at Miller Motorsports Park.

The latest strong performance from the ever-improving reigning British Superbike Champion, Camier shrugged off his inexperience of the Utah circuit to prove competitive throughout race day.

Benefitting from his Aprilia's good straight-line speed to get off the line well on both occasions, although tyre problems dropped him to fourth in race one, Camier was able to make ground in race two as he caught and passed Troy Corser before holding off Cal Crutchlow.

Crossing the line second behind Aprilia Alitalia team-mate Max Biaggi, Camier was delighted to contribute to the team's first-ever 1-2 finish at this level.

"It couldn't have gone any better than this,” he said. “I rode a second race which was pushed to the maximum. The modifications to my RSV4 worked. Max had a better pace, so my goal is to keep working and growing so that I can stay up front.

“A double victory is always something magic, particularly this one which is the first for Aprilia. I hope I can give more of this kind of excitement to both the fans and the entire Team.”

Significantly, Camier is now up to eighth in the overall standings and is well positioned to make further in-roads, not least because he is the only rider to have retired in four races this season so far.

Aprilia have to be impressed with Leon, OK he's on a good bike, but both rides at Miller were impressive, even more so that this was his first time at the circuit. He's not that far away from his massively experienced team mate either. Is a win on the cards for him?
