OK Riders, set ‘em up! The gate is about to drop on the 2018 season. And as we get every-lastbit of photo gear we have packed up and on its way to Vegas, we get an early peek at the freshened-up, and oh-so-fresh Factory Answer Rennen rider kit for the new season.

The squad is back in the new year to defend the Factory Team title it won at the Grands, and will be rockin a new colorway to go along with their winning ways.

We caught up with friend-of-News, BMX mad scientist and Answer/Rennen team owner, George Costa to hear a little about the program.

We are all-set to begin the title defense this weekend at the USA BMX 2018 season opener in Las Vegas. As Back to Back Factory Team champs, we’re returning for the 2018 season with National Champion Co-Captains, National 1 Amateur, Brandon Crain in 14X and National 1 Cruiser champ, Marshall Gehrke in 11X/11C leading the charge.

New for 2018 is the addition of Blot Out Graphics as our exclusive jersey/plate, designer/provider.

Rolando Camacho and his wife Annelice have been running Blot Out Graphics since 2013. Their graphic design talent, professionalism, and exceptionally-quick turnaround is the best we have ever experienced in the seven-year existence of the team.
