The former Yoshimura Suzuki rider has been wheeled in to substitute for Camier who was injured in a big highside at Istanbul Park last weekend.
“I’m really excited at the prospect of riding for FIXI Crescent Suzuki and I can’t wait to ride the bike. It was a surprise to get the call, but it will be great to go back to Laguna Seca, especially on a World Superbike - it’s a bit like a dream come true for me and made even better that it’s a Suzuki," said 2012 AMA Superbike runner-up.
"I’m now ready to get out on the bike and try to do some good things on the world stage and see what happens from there. I want to thank all the people that have made this happen and it’s never good when a rider gets injured, so I want to wish Leon all the best for a quick and full recovery, It will be great to ride his bike and hopefully I can do well on it for him and the team.”
