From a press release
issued by Team Suzuki News Service:
Leon Camier (2), as seen during the 2013 season on his FIXI Crescent Suzuki GSX-R1000.
Crescent Suzuki bids Leon Camier a fond and regrettable farewell as his second year with the team has drawn to a close.
Camier joined the Crescent World Superbike team at the end of 2011 and has been a popular addition to the team ever since. He brought a wealth of experience to the Crescent Suzuki squad and all who have worked with him have benefitted from this and his friendly, accessible manner.
The Englishman was responsible for FIXI Crescent Suzuki’s first-ever WSBK podium, when he finished third at Nurburgring in 2012 and repeated that feat again at Silverstone this season. He has been hampered with some serious injuries in 2013, but has always fought back quickly with a very positive attitude.
Suzuki, Crescent Motorcycle Company, 2012/13 title sponsor FIXI, all members of the squad and the team’s other sponsors, partners and associates would like to wish Camier well for the future in both his racing and personal life and to thank him for the two-years of hard work, dedication and professionalism that he has given the team.
Details on the 2014 line-up for Crescent Suzuki WSBK will be announced in the near future.
Paul Denning – Team Manager:
“On behalf of all at Crescent and all our sponsors and partners, I would like to thank Leon for the two years that he has been with the team. He has not only been the consummate professional at all times and a great ambassador, he has also become a close friend. His infectious nature is a pleasure to have around the team and he will certainly be missed. I don’t think we ever saw the best of Leon, due to some unfortunate injuries, but if points were awarded for dedication to get back to full fitness then he would have been 2013 World Champion!
“I wish Leon the very best of luck for the future and I am genuinely sad to see him leave the team. He is a highly talented racer who deserves to get back to the winning circle.”
