WSBK Laguna Seca: Camier to ride MV Agusta at Laguna Seca

Leon Camier gets a call up to ride for MV Agusta Reparto Corse at the Laguna Seca WSBK round this weekend in place of the injured Claudio Corti.
Leon Camier will return to the World Superbike Championship for round nine at Laguna Seca after being called up to replace the injured Claudio Corti at MV Agusta.

The former Aprilia and Suzuki rider began the 2014 WSBK season without a ride but enjoyed a lengthy stint on the BMW Italia EVO machine in the absence of the injured Sylvain Barrier, notching up two class wins before the Frenchman returned at Misano.

Since then, Camier was put on standby for a possible MotoGP ride with M7 Drive Aspar Honda in place of the injured Nicky Hayden, but wasn't subsequently needed.

Nonetheless, the former British Superbike Champion will be back in the WSBK reckoning this weekend at Laguna Seca as the deputy for Corti, who suffered injuries in a fall during SP1 at Portimao, which in turn ruled him out of both races.

The move will see Camier riding the sole MV Agusta F4 for the first time this weekend, which recently saw its development brought in-house following the decision by erstwhile partners Yakhnich Motorsport' to withdraw from the series on financial

Who knows, but not being with Ioda or Crescent might prove a blessing in disguise. Ioda is doing nothing (and he probably wouldnt be earning much/any wages with them) and some eye catching rides with BMW and (hopefully) MV might increase his worh (and he is probably getting paid for them!)
