Leon Camier has agreed to join Crescent Suzuki for next year’s World Superbike Championship (WSB).

It ensures the 25-year-old from Ashford will be in the WSB for the third successive season after two years with Aprilia Alitalia. Ending the 2010 season in 12th, he claimed four podiums this year on the way to seventh in the championship.

Camier is thrilled to join Crescent Suzuki, who are making the step up from the British Superbike Championship for next year.

He said: “My first two years in WSB have been tough but I’ve learnt a lot and had some good results to build on, so this is a great opportunity for me.

“I’m really looking forward to the new season and I believe that the Suzuki GSX-R is certainly a very capable bike, especially with the technical plan the guys have in place. This is a fantastic chance for me to take the next step in my career and I’m very thankful to the guys at Crescent for giving me the opportunity.”

Testing will begin later this month ahead of the first round of the season in Australia on February 26.
