Interview with Leon Camier

Oh that's just an old nick name, it evolved; Camier - Camshaft - Shaft - Shafter. There are other things behind it as well as to why they thought it was funny.
Lastly, do you ever dangle a leg into corners?

Leon Camier:
Yes, it's a balance thing. When you're hard on the brakes, a bike can easily get crossed up going into a turn and sticking your leg out gives you better balance when you're hard on the brakes. It depends on the circuit, bike and how hard you're braking as to how much you need it.
Thanks for that Leon and good luck with the knee.

Leon Camier:
No problems.

Regardless of what happened at Aprilia, this guy's hard as nails. To overcome a pretty serious injury, a terrible grid position and a slow bike to finish 7th is pretty epic. He's going to come good eventually.

And don't forget Aprillia offered Leon the ride for this season, before going for Guintoli, which he turned down. It just shows why as you would not turn down a ride like that without good reason.
