MV Agusta Reparto Corse_041716

Leon Camier ends up in 9th position the second race of MOTUL FIM WorldSBK Championship in Assen and he gets other 7 points in Championship Standing.

The unpredictable Dutch weather forced the race direction to declare wet race, with Camier starting from the 13th place in grid and ready to battle for the top 10 of the race.

As the asphalt begin to be almost dry, MV Agusta Reparto Corse decide for a quick pit-stop, in order to set the slick tyre on his bike, the best choice with this kind of mixed weather condition. With Camier finding a better feeling on his MV Agusta F4 RC machine, the 29-years old British rider can finally starts his comeback till the top 10 of the field, closing in 9th final position.

With the 4th placement on Race 1 yesterday – the best placement ever fo MV Agusta squad in WorldSBK – Leon will be on track again in two weeks, in Imola, the iconic Italian track, home race for the whole Schiranna based squad.

Leon Camier #2 – Really difficult conditions today. In the start I felt comfortable when the track was really wet, but when it started to be dry I started to loose performance; I struggled to get enough grip to keep corner speed and to accelerate. We changed with the slick tires and was a good decision, since I started to get in the rhythm in the dry, passing some riders. I am really happy for this and for our performance on the wet but we need to understand the problem in the middle, when is still wet but start drying.
