Ashford rider Leon Camier has travelled to Australia for pre-season testing ahead of the start of his second season in the World Superbike Championship.

The 24-year-old and his title-winning Aprilia team were due to begin a three-day test this week at the Phillip Island track near Melbourne.

Camier (pictured), the 2009 British Superbike champion, is looking forward to making progress as the team step up their preparations for 2011 and it will be the first time he has had the opportunity to test new parts.

He said: "We've got a lot of things to try, which is encouraging. We want to continue work on ergonomics so I can see if I can get more comfortable on the bike.

"We should have a new tank and a couple of other parts to test.

"We're going to look at electronics because, although we made a step forward at the last test, there's more to come."

Camier will remain in Australia to train with MotoGP rider Casey Stoner, before returning to Monaco to continue his winter training with professional cyclists Tom Boonen, Stuart O'Grady and Richie Porte.

He then returns to Australia in February for an official WSB test and the first round of the 2011 season at the end of that month.
