Camier back in WSB to deputise for injured Corti

Leon Camier will once again return to the World Superbike championship this weekend at Laguna Seca, deputising for the injured Claudio Corti on the factory MV Agusta machine. Corti, who crashed out of Superpole 1 at Portimao last weekend, has been ruled unfit to race, after a head injury in the race has left him with ongoing symptoms including memory problems....

Go to BSB Leon

If he's really WSBK quality, he should go back to BSB, win some races, and show team managers why he should be in WSBK. He could have got the Halsall Kawasaki ride if he wanted to I'm sure. Missed opportunity.

It's a shame

Leon has to resort to 'ambulance chasing' to get a ride, he deserves better, maybe a good showing at Laguna may help him. I don't think Shakey and the guys would like to see him back in BSB lol.

Game of tennis anyone?

 

When I was watching Wimbledon (an unusual opeing line on this forum I grant you) it would amuse me to look up the prize money career earnings of guys I'd never even heard of. I'm talking about guys that have never in their shole lives ever taken a set, much less beaten the top seeds like Federer. Average $10 million dollars. And that's just in prize money for heaven's sake. 

So why is there so little money for riders in bike racing? I blame the organsiers. Someone must be on the make.

I assume a lot of people think that bike riders in general are stupid for doing something so dangerous. Why should people get paid for being stupid?

I've heard it said by TV commentators that you can make a half-decent living in BSB, as the bikes are far cheaper so there's actually a few quid left over for the riders. In the next few years this will hopefully happen in WSBK too, as the evo rules take hold. To 99% of us, the bikes getting cheaper, and slightly slower, will make **** all difference to the quality of entertainment on offer, as it's all relative. If BSB is anything to go by, making the bikes cheaper also makes the racing closer. I don't know about you, but I like close racing.

One thing that is not up for debate is that every rider in every class in every series deserves to make a living wage at the very minimum. They provide us all with excellent entertainment whilst risking their lives. The most dangerous thing that happens to me at work is downloading a computer virus by accident, and I earn more than some riders in world championship series'. That's not right.

Whenever I attend a Classic or Club meeting there is always close exciting racing and although they're travelling at half the speed of Motogp the excitement of a close scrap is not diminished.
