Aprilia Confirms Camier for 2011 Superbike

World Superbike

Aprilia Racing confirms that Leon Camier will ride again for the 2011 World Superbike Championship.

The Aprilia Alitalia Racing Team has exercised their option for the reigning British Superbike champion who, considering the promising results achieved this season, will be part of the official team and ride the RSV4 in the next World SBK season next to Max Baiggi.

Leon Camier’s 2010 WSBK experience was without a doubt a positive début in a highly competitive world championship. In spite of the apprenticeship, which was to be expected, the young Brit captured three podiums and his fair share of placings, showing consistent improvement and a growing feeling with the four cylinder Aprilia.

Gigi Dall’Igna (Technical and Sport Director for Aprilia Racing) says: "We are very happy to be able to count on Leon again next season. He is a young rider but has excellent potential and I believe he has shown it."

"He achieved encouraging results in spite of the fact that he had never seen the tracks in this championship before. What we have really appreciated about him is the consistent improvement race after race. We hope that this growth trend will continue next season, allowing Leon and the Team to achieve significant results."

Leon Camier says: "I’m truly excited at the thought of being able to continue racing with Aprilia. I hope that I can take advantage of what I’ve learned this year, setting up a series of tests and trying new set-ups to take a decisive step forward."

"I have a lot of ideas for the winter and I’ll give my all to make them work in anticipation of next season. The operation on my right wrist went well. I’m doing rehabilitation exercises now and I can’t wait to get back into shape and astride the bike."
