Fast Freddy and Me

Here's Fast Freddy on the ITT. You can also see a glimpse of him on the final sprint in an earlier posted shot just to the right side of George Fraser.

One thing I love about pro cycling is how accessible the riders are. Even the top dogs don't mind to hang out and answer a few questions, pose for a shot, or sign some autographs - at least in my past couple years attendance at the Tour de Georgia.

During the pre-race gatherings of riders and fans, I was continuously amazed at how open these guys are to signing autographs and posing for pictures. (By the way, that's me above with Fast Freddy.)

Freddy must have signed 50 or more autographs here before the start of the final stage.

Tommy D. signing a few before Stage 4 in Dalton, GA.

Janez Brajkovic sporting the GE Best Young Rider jersey before Stage 4.

Finally, here's Eki posing with some guy that must've gotten his (and his Coke's) pic taken with every Discovery rider before the start of Stage 4.

Freddie's got the stylin' red shoe covers to go with the kit. Nice shots!
