“Winning a World Championship is Absolutely Insane!”

Few days after a great final in Germany that saw Brad FREEMAN (GB – Beta Boano) clinched his first E1 title, we had a chat with him, talking about his season and the future…

Hello Brad, how do you feel as the new E1 World Champion?
Brad FREEMAN: “It feels incredible! It’s really a dream come true… something I never ever expected! It’s crazy to think I’m te E1 World Champion, following in the footsteps of some of my hero’s like Antoine MEO and Ivan CERVANTES! Winning a world championship is an unbelievable feeling, but to do it in my first senior year against all odds is absolutely insane. We worked hard this winter and showed this year we were ready to fight at every race, and now I’m a two-time world champion… it’s incredible!”
