Leon Camier is set to return to the World Superbike Championship in 2015 after penning an agreement to join the MV Agusta factory team.

The Englishman has amassed 107 race starts since making his full-time WSBK debut in 2009, but endured an interrupted season in 2014 after losing his ride with Crescent Suzuki. Nonetheless, Camier still turned in ten WSBK races as a substitute at BMW Italia and MV Agusta, while he turned heads on a handful of MotoGP outings with Aspar Honda.

For 2015, Camier will make a full return to World Superbikes on the MV Agusta F4RR having impressed during a one-off outing at Laguna Seca in place of the injured Claudio Corti.

Scoring the bike's first top ten finish of the year, it took a wet and high attrition race in Magny-Cours for Corti to record a better result towards the end of the season.

With this in mind, Camier has been chosen in favour of Corti, who was expected to ride with MV Agusta on a two-year contract. Though there were plans to expand to two bikes for 2015, MV Agusta is likely to persevere with just a single entry for Camier.

Camier is currently in Jerez to ride to test the F4RR alongside its rivals.
