Two Wheel Tuesday Dave Despain On Mat Mladin

Having covered Mat Mladin for over 10 years now I have always been impressed with him, as a man, and as a racer.  I have always found Mat to be very fair.  Back in 2001 at a January test at Laguna Seca I interviewed Mat for the old version of Rumblestrip.net and in transcribing the interview misquoted him.  It was interesting to actually get a call from Mat himself to ask if that is what he had said.  It turned out that he was correct and I was not.  I posed a correction to the interview and an apology for misquoting him and we were good.  In fact as long as Mat wasn't "working" he was always available for a chat, an interview or just to say hi.  It was also then that I found Mat to have a very good sense of humor.

Dave Despain who I'm going to guess hasn't always been a fan of Mat given their dust ups in the past still has great respect for the guy and says so here on a recent episode of WindTunnel.
