FAST FREDDIE NOREN’S PRIVATEER LIFE: 2021 THUNDER VALLEY NATIONAL
The AMA Nationals are already two races into their 12-race season and things are looking up for Freddie Noren. After struggling with multiple bike issues at the Fox Raceway National, one of the problems being his rear tire peeling off the rim (see the video here). Now, Freddie has logged two consistent motos, beating factory riders on his privateer KTM 450SXF and finishing inside the top 15 in both motos. The 450 class is extremely stacked for the 2021 season and Freddie Noren is tackling the series privateer style with Chris Cole as his mechanic and the Ted Parks Racing team (TPJ) hauling his bike to the races. In this video Chad Murray follows Freddie as he does some suspension testing at Glen Helen, delivers his race bike to Ted Parks, battles hard at the Thunder Valley National and ends up injuring his finger that was already broken from a crash in Supercross.
Popular privateer rider Freddie Noren is known for his time spent as a fill-in rider on factory Honda, for scoring top-10 finishes as a privateer and for his never-say-die attitude. In 2021, Freddie has been producing weekly behind the scenes “vlog” style videos to document his journey through the racing season with his videographer Chad Murray capturing the highs and lows of professional racing as a privateer. The MXA wrecking crew enjoyed watching his videos from Supercross and is happy to partner with Freddie for the Outdoor Nationals by hosting his videos on the Motocross Action Magazine YouTube channel.
