Fred is sponsored by the following organizations:

Pearl Izumi

Pear Izumi is a world leader in technical cycling, biking and running outdoor gear for men and women.

Fred is a total believer in Pear Izumi gear. Fred says, “In RAAM, shoes, shorts and gloves are most important since they protect the rider’s contact points with the bike. Problems with hotfoot, saddle sores and numbing in the hands can slow you down and knock you out of the race. During 2005 RAAM, I never had a problem with any of the contact points. Thank Pearl Izumi for that.”

Pearl Izumi is committed to helping organizations who not only promote fitness and environmental responsibility, but also seek ways to eliminate or treat life-changing diseases. Pearl Izumi supports the Davis Phinney Foundation, American Cancer Society, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Trips for Kids, IMBA, Conservation Alliance and Bikes Belong Coalition.

Bart’s CD Cellar

Bart’s CD Cellar is one of the top independent music retailers in the country. Bart’s has a large selection of new & used CDs, new & used records, cassettes, posters and music paraphernalia. The staff at Bart’s is friendly and knowledgeable. Best of all, you can listen before you buy.

It took Fred and Dan 8 days, 13 hours, 34 minutes to ride from San Diego to Atlantic City. That’s a lot of time on the bike. Music is an essential component. Every RAAM rider’s primary support vehicles are equipped with an exterior speaker system so the riders can listen to music as they ride. It helps pass the time and keep them awake. According to Fred, “We were informally voted as having the best music at RAAM in 2005. We listened to everything from Buddy Holly to Luciano Pavaroti. Thanks CD Cellar.”
