Cudlin ready to step in and replace injured Camier

'I'm really pleased to have been given this opportunity to step into the FIXI Crescent Suzuki team if I'm needed' - Damian Cudlin
Australian rider Damian Cudlin is on standby to replace Leon Camier in the Fixi Crescent Suzuki team should the injured British rider be unable to race this weekend at Assen.

Camier suffered a knee injury following a crash at the second World Superbike round last time out at Aragon in Spain and is facing a battle to be fit for round three in The Netherlands – with a statement from his team rating him a '50 per cent chance'.

Cudlin, who rides for the Dutch-based RAC Racing Team in the German IDM Superbike Championship, was due to compete in a support race at Assen but is now poised to substitute for Camier if required and compete alongside Jules Cluzel.

The 30-year-old is highly experienced and has previously raced in MotoGP and Moto2.

Cudlin said: “I'm really pleased to have been given this opportunity to step into the FIXI Crescent Suzuki team if I'm needed.

“I've competed in a lot of championships including MotoGP, Moto2, AMA and of course Aussie Superbikes, but I've never had the chance to ride for a top-class WSB team.

“I'm really thrilled to have been asked by Paul and thankful to Geert Prins and the RAC team for giving me the chance to ride for FIXI Crescent Suzuki if the situation arises,” he added.

“Obviously it's the best for the team if Leon is fit, but if he is not then I will be very happy to step in.”

Cudlin's RAC (Riders against Cancer) team supports children with cancer through its racing activities via the Happy Smile Foundation and more details can be found at www.stichtinghappysmile.com
