Another rider to change his team for 2018, Brit Leon Camier makes the move over to Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team as he hopes to make a return to the WorldSBK podium. Camier's first success came when he was crowned 2005 British Supersport Champion before moving up into the British Superbike Championship, where he spent three seasons. Crowned BSB champion in 2009, the 31 year old secured a full time ride in WorldSBK the following season after some wild card appearances.
Taking three podium finishes in his rookie season with Aprilia, the Kent rider switched to Suzuki for two seasons in 2012 before moving to BMW, and then returning to an Italian team, this time, MV Agusta. Camier was also able to get an opportunity in MotoGP™ as he replaced injured Nicky Hayden on the Aspar Team Open Honda. Spending three seasons with MV Agusta - from 2015 to 2017 - Camier put in some impressive performances as he dealt with some unreliable machines at times. Narrowly missing out on podium finishes in 2017, Camier will take his stunning determination with him to his new Honda team, as he hopes to improve the Fireblade.
