Both Marc and Freddie met with fans, signing autographs, giving interviews and enjoying a warm reception in South-west France. This was the first time the two riders had been given the opportunity to swap experiences since Marc took over from Freddie as the youngest ever premier class winner. It was a record that Fast Freddie had held for 31 years and both were clearly excited.
