I got word about some threads bashing Fred around the ebike world and was shocked to read. Most riders vocalizing concerns weren't at the events and dont know the story. I was at the race and Fred had every right to be upset!! People were standing in the course at the worst spot (atop a hill, end of a long pedal section) Fred yells get out of the way!!(his tenth heat-prolly some adrenaline going on to) Kid off to the side yells back mellow out- Fred asked the kid whats up? Not a big deal, sure did get turned into one. If you have a problem say something to Freds face instead of on forums we have no way to respond to. Feel free to p.m. me here as well or send the link over to other sites if you want. One thing that did get misunderstood for the record was freds celebration at the s.p race - he flipped off the mtn not the other riders (last year he took a very tough loss in the last corner and it was a big win for him).
