Leon Camier Returns for Final WSB Race of the Season

Posted:

FIXI Crescent Suzuki heads to the final round of the 2013 eni FIM Superbike World Championship with its usual rider line-up as Leon Camier returns to the fold after missing the last two events.

Camier seriously injured his right foot in a crash in Turkey last month, which required surgery to repair seven broken bones. The Englishman has undergone a comprehensive recuperation programme to regain his fitness and hopes to pass the trackside medical on Thursday at Jerez to enable him to compete in this weekend‰Ûªs event on his Yoshimura-powered Suzuki GSX-R.

Camier has never raced at Jerez before and is determined to put this season‰Ûªs troubles behind him and produce a positive performance in Spain.

‰ÛÏI have made massive progress with the foot and even surprised the doctors, because most of them said I wouldn‰Ûªt make it back for Jerez." Camier explained. "My foot is still a bit swollen, but it is improving all the time and it‰Ûªs just my general fitness that I need to work on, so although I need to rest to help the recovery I also need to be getting in lots of exercise ‰ÛÒ which means I‰Ûªm a bit caught between the two.

"I have to get the balance right and I won‰Ûªt be anywhere near full fitness in Spain, but I will be close enough to ride and then we‰Ûªll have to see what happens from there. I will need to take a medical at Jerez, but don‰Ûªt think that will be a problem as I can now put my weight on the foot and I‰Ûªve done a bit of Trials and Enduro riding, so I know it‰Ûªs working ok.

"I‰Ûªve only tested at Jerez before and I‰Ûªm really looking forward to going there at the weekend and being involved at the last race of the season," he concluded.

Jules Cluzel is again one of the few riders heading towards this new inclusion on the Superbike calendar with experience of the track. He raced there in the 125cc, 250cc and Moto2䋢 classes of the MotoGP䋢 championship between 2006 and 2011.

He will undoubtedly put this experience to good use during the early sessions of the weekend and will hope that this knowledge will stand him in good stead to bring his first season in the World Superbike class to a fitting conclusion.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm looking forward to getting to Jerez and hopefully we‰Ûªll have some nice sunny weather to finish off the season." Cluzel stated. "I have raced at Jerez many times before and done lots of testing there because it was used as a test track for some of the teams I raced for.

"It was also the second place that I rode the FIXI Crescent Suzuki in pre-season testing, so I also have some knowledge of how the bike works there. I really want to finish off the year in a good way and give my crew a good result, because they really deserve it for all their hard work this season.‰Û
