Airwaves Yamaha can secure BSB title at Cadwell

1 of 1

Leon Camier needs to score 21 more points than the nearest non-Airwaves Yamaha rider at Cadwell Park this Bank Holiday Monday to assure the team of the BSB title
That would mean the battle for the championship would then be a direct battle between Leon and team-mate James Ellison when the series travels to Croft in North Yorkshire two weeks later.

Currently leading the championship on 374.5 points, Leon secured the first ever triple-victory in the series at the previous round, becoming the most successful BSB rider in terms of wins in a single season.

Camier said: “This season has been incredible, and hopefully our good form will continue at Cadwell Park. I’d like to try and put my fall from a couple of years ago (when he broke his femur after crashing at the Mountain) firmly behind me with some good results.

“It’s been a busy couple of weeks since the last race at Brands Hatch. I’ve been training as usual, but also taking part in some races of a slightly different sort. Last week I entered the Surrey League Revolutions five-day cycle race.

“Around 80 of Britain’s top riders take part and cover around 100 miles a day, as well as climbing some of the steepest hills in South East England. It was great to be pushing myself against some of the top cyclists and actually be amongst it. But I’m looking forward to getting back on my Airwaves Yamaha this weekend!”

With two victories and a further six podium finishes secured so far this season, Ellison is also in the hunt for the title with 261 points.

He said: “I didn’t race at Cadwell Park last year due to injury, and so I want to make up for it on the Airwaves Yamaha. It’s a circuit I really enjoy, and I think we should put on a good show for the fans.”
