Ben Frederick, who we first got to know in episodes 9 and 20 of Crosshairs Radio, returns for a third time. Ben wanted to talk, first and foremost, about updates to the team he created in 2015, which is now called beyondCX p/b Ascent Bicycle Studio.
After a good conversation surrounding the team announcement, we move on to part ii of the show, which tackles Ben’s current condition and the recovery process from a traumatic brain injury. Four months ago, Ben crashed while riding through a sandy section on a training ride and hit his head. His journey back to normalcy from that day on hasn’t been easy.
The second half of the conversation is a tough one, but worth listening to. Despite it all, Ben finds away to keep it positive. Thanks for tuning in and please check out the new team at beyondCX.rocks.
Also, follow on Twitter at @beyondCXcycling and Instagram at @beyondCXcycling. Give his team and sponsors a shout. And if you feel compelled, throw in a couple bucks to help Ben with the necessities during his recovery: www.gofundme.com/BenjamFred.
