Superbikes - Cudlin on stand-by should Camier miss Assen

Damian Cudlin has been drafted in to the Fixi Suzuki World Superbike squad should Leon Camier be unable to ride at this weekend's Assen World Superbike round.

The former BSB champion split his knee in a monster highside at Aragon two weeks ago and although he has undergone surgery and regular check-up, it may well be too early to ride, so Cudlin is waiting in the wings.

"I’ve competed in a lot of championships but I’ve never had the chance to ride for a top-class WSB team. I’m really thrilled to have been asked by Paul and thankful to Geert Prins and the RAC team for giving me the chance to ride for FIXI Crescent Suzuki if the situation arises," said Cudlin.

"Obviously it’s the best for the team if Leon is fit, but if he is not then I will be very happy to step in. If I do get the chance I can’t wait to take it and I’ll hopefully do a good job and perform at my best for the team.”
