Camier: I don't know how I'll hold up

Leon Camier admits he won't know how he will 'hold up' during the third round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship at Assen.
Leon Camier is heading to Assen, round three of the 2011 World Superbike Championship, with an open mind as he continues on the long road to recovery.

The Briton put in a remarkable podium-winning performance on home ground at Donington Park, despite still feeling the tiring affects of the glandular fever he was suffering with two months ago.

Returning to the scene of his first podium finish, Camier is looking forward to riding at Assen once more, but is concerned the physical nature of the Dutch circuit may hamper him.

"I had my first World Superbike podium there last year so it holds some good memories,” the Aprilia rider said. “It's a really physical circuit so I don't know how I'll hold up, but I'm doing everything I can to try and score another couple of strong results.

“Keith Code from the California Superbike School is coming to help me again. His input at Donington Park was invaluable so it's a boost to know he'll be there.

“Throughout the last race weekend I struggled towards the end of every session with fatigue so I've also got my trainer coming.”
