Alitalia Aprilia rider Leon Camier’s title aspirations have been dealt a bitter blow after he was diagnosed with glandular fever just hours before the World Superbike championship kicked off at Phillip Island.

Since arriving in Australia one week ago for official testing the 23 year old has been suffering from flu like symptoms and dizziness which prevented him from completing any meaningful testing.

Camier was given a host of medication by the Clinica Mobile since arriving in Australia, but only got an official diagnosis later yesterday afternoon.

Camier said: “It’s obviously really frustrating to be starting the season like this, but we’ve just got to get on with the job and its only one round of thirteen. I’ve been feeling really, really ill all week. During the test I was feeling sick and dizzy and like a crash probably wasn’t too far away so I decided it wasn’t safe for me to carry on riding. We had a couple of days off and been able to find out why I’ve been feeling so ill. So now I’ve got to focus on the weekend ahead and get myself back 100%. I’ll definitely be riding but I’ll be taking it steady!”
