Fred's Bio: Fred Evans has ridden over 170,000 miles—that’s on a bicycle, not in a car. In 1986 and 1987, Fred was on loan from his executive position with Eli Lilly to the Pan American Games Organizing Committee, where he served as Vice President of the Competition Division and Co-Chairman of the Games and Venue Division. In 1981, he led the effort to have the newly built Velodrome in Indianapolis named for Marshall “Major” Taylor, a native of Indianapolis and the first Black world champion in any sport. Fred worked for 30 years in the financial division of Eli Lilly and Company. This book deals with surviving prostate cancer through laughter and faith. Having a loving wife, family, friends and prayers has been vital to his survival.
