As a spectator and CrossFit fan, Frausto is the guy to watch in Aromas.

Ricky, I think your heart has been reincarnated... in a previous life it belonged to a racehorse. HA! You lead by example, and we are all better athletes because of it. :-)

I'm currenlty stationed at Ellsworth AFB in SD, but as a native of Omaha I followed Ricky last year and can't wait to see him this year.

I've really enjoyed following you through qualifying Ricky. All the best in Aromas.

Best of luck!
