Leon Camier will ride for the Crescent Suzuki Racing team in WSB in 2012 after signing a one-year deal with the British team.

Camier said: “There will be a big push to get me to the front of WSB. I can’t wait to get on the bike and see how I click with it.”
Camier has spent the last two seasons campaigning the factory Aprilia RSV4, finishing a respectable seventh in the overall standings this season, with four podiums.
