All snowmobilers owe this man thanks! He changed the way we all ride for the better. Berthold Fecteau retired from BRP last Friday with 26 patents in North America between snowmobiles and Can-Am Spyder. He was one of the originators of the rider forward concept introduced on the first REV prototypes which he helped design and build. It has affected every snowmobile designed since.

Enjoy retirement Bert! You've earned it.
