MV Agusta re-signs Camier for WSBK 2017

Leon Camier will stay with the MV Agusta Reparto Corse team for the 2017 World Superbike Championship.
MV Agusta Reparto Corse has announced it has re-signed Leon Camier for the 2017 World Superbike Championship.

Camier has enjoyed a strong season on the factory team's sole F4RR, emerging as a regular front runner with seven top five finishes to his name ahead of the 2016 finale in Qatar.

As such, MV Agusta has moved to secure Camier for a third season in 2017, the former British Superbike Champion looking to continue the manufacturer's upward trend.

“I'm really happy to sign again for season 2017. For me I believe in this project 100% and I sincerely feel the bike has an even higher potential, and for me this is a strong point. For sure we have to work hard over the winter but I have a very good feeling with the bike and I am sure next year we will get some really positive results for MV Agusta.”

“We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Leon, in order to give continuity to our collaboration,” added team principal Andrea Quadranti. “We are definitely pleased to have him in Team MV Agusta Reparto Corse also for the next year, given the excellent results we achieved together and the great professionalism Leon showed us this season.”

After finishing 13th overall in their first full season together in 2015, Camier and MV Agusta are eighth overall heading into the final round at the Losail International Circuit.

Most people whatching would put Cammier right up there with chaz, tom and JR. He does things little short of miraculous on that bike, and MV are lucky to hold on to him. he deserves a podium this year, definitiely, and I really doubt any other rider would've done as well as he has.

MV are doing well albeit on a shoestring, and Leon has been putting in great performances given the machine. MV came at a time when Leon needed somewhere to go and they have gelled. They are punching above their weight. Leon obviously feels that there has been a big improvement this year and there is at least the prospect of more next year. Let's hope he is right. Great to see MV in the races hopefully even better when they start winning next year!
