Exclusive interview with Stuart Easton

Strengths I would say consistency and being smooth so I can conserve tyres better. Weakness? well, I'm not going to answer that! You'll have to talk to other riders.
Do you ever dangle a leg when braking?

Stuart Easton:
No, I've never felt the need. The GP guys do it so I guess it does something...
Lastly, what is this 'Rat Boy' thing?

Stuart Easton:
It came from Stuart Bland, one of the PBM guys. The original 'Rat Boy' was Carl Ramsey and because he was Scottish and I'm Scottish he said I was another 'Rat Boy' and it just stuck from there. The worst thing is that now even Carl Ramsey calls me 'Rat Boy'. There are worse things to be called though!
Thanks a lot Stuart, ride safe and if you win the title, you'll give us the first interview right?

Stuart Easton:
Definitely, that'd be grand.

He's quiet, but he's hard as nails. I just can't believe that he has risen above the bad luck and terrible crashes that he has. If anyone deserves to win....
