2001 British 125cc Champion Leon Camier will be riding a Padgett's Honda in the first round of this year's national 125cc championship.

The 15-year-old Ashford schoolboy landed the ride at the eleventh hour having suffered the collapse of two previous deals.

"When I heard Leon was without a ride I immediately offered him a bike," said team manager Clive Padgett, "It won't be easy running a 125 as well as the Padgett's Superbike team, but I didn't want to see a talented UK rider lose out through lack of support."

"Riding the Padgett's bike will really get the season off to a good start," said a delighted Camier, "working with Clive is the next best thing to being in GP's."
