“It felt like a homecoming. Philly is the source of a lot of positive feelings and memories for me, it feels familiar. And Exergy’s energy was positive, I felt like I belonged. It was a long first race back after a year and half off and I cramped at the end, but doing well from Exergy’s standpoint was always a bonus so yeah, coming home and racing for Exergy felt good.” – Fast Freddie.
