JEFF FREDETTE AND THE LOST CLUTCH

Jeff Fredette’s flight from Chicago to Helsinki was delayed for a day and a half. Then his luggage did not arrive for a couple of days. It arrived Sunday night along with his favored Rekluse clutch. He was able to put in his Rekluse clutch in the 10 minutes before the start.

Unfortunately, he didn’t have all the parts the first time and had to re-do it after starting and discovering the clutch wouldn’t engage. He lost a few minutes, of course, but at least he’s still going en route to what he hopes is a 31st Six Days finish.

    hang in there

  2. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Thanks a lot for the helpful article. It is also my belief that mesothelioma has an really long latency phase, which means that warning signs of the disease would possibly not emerge right until 30 to 50 years after the first exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, that’s the most common kind and has effects on the area within the lungs, will cause shortness of breath, chest pains, and also a persistent cough, which may lead to coughing up blood vessels.

    Thank you for any other magnificent article. Where else could anybody get that kind of info in such an ideal approach of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m on the search for such info.
