How's life on the Formula squad? Anthony Dean: It's great, it’s a small emerging team and I am enjoying helping it re-grow.
The colour of your bike matches the Aussie colours. Do you have a say on the colour of your frame? Anthony Dean: Yes, I wanted an Australian frame to match the outfit. As you can tell I love to color coordinate haha.
Is strength more important than weight on your bike?? Anthony Dean: A little of both, power to weight is also important to me! And while carbon fiber is very strong when done right.

When did you first pick up a Wiawis frame? Mathis Ragot: Winter 2017-2018

Wiawis, for those who have no clue, can you tell us a little about that brand? Sylvain André: Leaders in the Archery market, they went to BMX late 2016. Pretty simple geometry, I was on the Redline and asked them to keep it simple.

How's racing for Yess? Drew Mechielsen: It’s been really awesome.

When did you get picked up by Radio Bikes? Josh McLean: Well I actually ride for a bike shop in America called Full Tilt and the whole team runs the Radio Frames.

Radio Bikes are a rather new brand on the racing circuit, do you get to give product feedback to
