Leon Camier remains on Aspar Honda standby

Leon Camier will remain on standby for the Aspar Honda squad for the foreseeable future in case Nicky Hayden has any additional problems with a long-running right wrist injury. British rider Camier was sat on the sidelines during last weekend’s Catalunya round in Barcelona, having been contacted out of the blue about possibly replacing Hayden on a production Honda RCV1000R in...

 I think Leon would be too big for one of those little under powered Hondas. I think we are much more likely to see him on a TAS Suzuki before long.

Bautista clipped the back tyre of Andrea Dovizioso and slid off, skittling the bikes of Valentino Rossi, Nicky Hayden and Randy De Puniet in the process.

that's from the race results

Not sure

I'm not sure how good Camier is really. I didn't watch BSB when he was dominating that back in 2009. He was a bit inconsistant in World Superbike, despite showing he had impressive speed at times on the Aprilia and Suzuki, and all of a sudden is was lined up for a move to MotoGP this year with IodaRacing, making it seem even more that riders from this country are not GP level. He turned up on a BMW to replace Sylvain Barrier, and I thought, great, he'll be mixing it up with the back end of the Superbikes, but no, just some lonely rides to first place in the EVO category. I was disappointed to say the least, I know they're close to Superstock level but wasn't that a BMW HP4? One of the finest motorcycles in the world? I was expecting him to do more to be honest. Another thing against him is his size, he must be taller than Scott Redding, and if he struggles on that bike, then Camier is going to find it even harder. But it'd be a great chance for him to get some seat time, show some World Superbikes teams what they are missing out on this year.

You're kidding??

Leon Camier may be a nice guy ( i've met him too, and he is ) but surely we all know he won't be able to cut it at this level??

Look at how far behind Fabrizio has been in the last couple of races, and he was decent in WSB.

Camier should cut his losses and go back to BSB, which can only be a good thing for him and the series. He should be a front runner and the series benefits from having a former champion back and also a bit of much needed star quality.
