Crosshairs Radio Episode 96: Ben Frederick At The DC Rapha Pop-Up

For episode 96 of Crosshairs Radio, Ben Frederick returns for an unprecedented 4-peat. Bill and Ben sat down in front of an amazing audience at Rapha’s DC Pop Up in Georgetown. We talked about Ben’s continuing recovery from the TBI he suffered last year, the slowlife and art, and his work developing events and providing stoke for the DC Rapha location.

Huge thanks to Rapha for hosting the event and being a great partner in these live podcasts. Thanks also to Sol Schott for making the evening awesome with Acme Pie.

If you are unfamiliar with Ben or his story from aspiring professional racer to ongoing recovery from TBI, here are his first three appearances on the show (Eps 9, 20 and 56):
