Wiser words were never spoken. Josh and I met Jeff Fredette for the first time at the Mexico ISDE when he was after his 30th. Out of ALL the riders there, I was the most impressed with him. He was always calm, cool, and collected. There is a method to his madness and a reason he has finished 31 ISDE's. At the end of the week, when packing up the U.S. container, he was the first one there to do a lot of the "heavy lifting". Amazing example of a person and a rider.

Josh enjoy the remainder of your preparations. Stay fit, lots of hours on a bike...any bike. Years ago I was told that the Czech Trophy Team on their Jawas were Postmen! Spent all day and every day riding through the woods delivering letters! I wonder if it was true?
Thank you. Today is Josh's 17th birthday. He loaded up the dirt bike and the trials bike and is headed for the hills for several hours of riding. I'll be sure he sees everyone's encouragement and advice (he has enjoyed the support so far).
