Young Fred as Rachel now calls him, "The little engine that could" was always right behind her while she tamed her new KTM690 -- "The Beast". The power of her 700cc was no match for Young Fred's small 250cc's. He was not to be left behind while he slowly and safely putted along to meet with The Beast and Queen Rachel while they waited at the intersections for Missrider to catch up.
Missrider and Young Fred did fantastic in deep puddles. The light bike and full open throttle control was a success during those crossings.
