Jeff Fredette is a multitime International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) medalist and an AMA Grand National Cross Country, hare scrambles and enduro race winner.
Born in Blue Island, Ill., in 1958, Fredette began riding in enduro and observed trials competitions with his father, Wayne. At the age of 12 he began competing in trials on his own.
Fredette's father was a machinist, and he helped Jeff develop mechanical skills and problem-solving abilities at an early age. These skills would serve Jeff and his fellow riders very well in the years to come.
"We spent many hours at night working on bikes and vehicles, getting ready for races, always tinkering in the garage," Jeff said. "One time we tuned up the car engine for a trip, and then it ran rough. We messed it up because my dad was taking the time to show me how to do it. But that's how you learn to be thorough, and now, because of those experiences, I'm not afraid to tear into something and see how it works."
