Crescent Fixi Suzuki's Leon Camier had half-a-point to show for his efforts after finishing 15th in the second World Superbike race two at Monza.

The Briton was the team's sole representative in the race after team-mate John Hopkins suffered a broken foot following a crash at the Italian circuit.

"Today was embarrassing because I was running around with people I knew I could beat. I could catch them on the brakes, but once we exited the turns, they left me for dead," said Camier.

"We all knew that there might be problems today if it was wet or partially wet, because in practice and qualifying the rain tyres destroyed themselves after about five or six laps, so there was no way that they would've lasted a race distance.

"We all hoped for dry conditions, but they never happened. The organisers were aware of the problems with the wet tyres and both their decisions today were the right ones."

Team manager Jack Valentine added: "It's difficult to make complete sense of a day like today, but thankfully it doesn't happen very often.

"If the track was soaking wet and it was raining, the wet tyres wouldn't have lasted long enough - maybe just five or six laps.

"The cancellation of race one and the stoppage of race two were the correct choices, though obviously the crowds weren't very happy.

"We've lost valuable track time this weekend and that's frustrating, especially as we've definitely improved our set-up in conditions like these."
