Jeff Fredette rides KDX to silver medal in Slovakia

It was nice to see Mr. KDX finish his 25th ISDE! This guy is a living legend.

I got stopped for speeding and the cop asks me "Don't you know the speed limit is 55 miles per hour?" So I said "yeah but I wasn't gonna be out that long."

That sure looked like a KDX200 he was on. I thought he went 4 stroke.

He also competed in the Red Bull-Last Man Standing. Was running 15th place until the final loop, then he dropped out. Have to go to that site for the reason. Not bad for a 48 yr. old, competing against men 1/2 his age, Huh

..........because the conventionals work just fine. I know I know its a contingency thing. Hey....Scott Summers even goes back to conventionals sometimes on his big 450. I know it seems to be the thing to do for some here but I swear I don't think my front end could be any better than it is now. I like a little flex and the underhang is barely an issue. All in all ol' Fredette always reminds me thats its still 95% rider and 5% bike. You don't need the latest and greatest orange thing to be a successful rider. I could have any bike I wanted but just can't find one I like better than my KDX.
