Formula is a MTB icon, a Company that has marked the path with outstanding technical developments in the history of this sport. I still remember more than 20 years ago when I tried the first disc brakes produced by Formula. I had the distinct feeling of witnessing a new era in mountain bike. I had exactly the same feeling when I tried the Selva fork for the first time”.

The partnership with Formula allows us to have the best set up possible, thanks to the many tests we did in the off season. This really allow us to try improving our results, and this is a great thing. I hope that the commitment that we are putting into this project will help me to achieve what I’m looking for. In 2017 I will do my best to stay consistently in the top 10 of EWS”.

This year we will also use the Selva fork and Linea wheels. Since the early tests I was very impressed in a positive way. I thank Formula for helping me to get the best out of my bike. Great job!”.
Dimitri Tordo: “I'm really happy to have the opportunity to work with such a professional team. Everything on my bike is dialed in. After two years’ experience with their brakes working with Formula is almost like working with friends, the atmosphere is fantastic. Every feedback is taken very seriously and is used to improve the set up. In 2017 I will give my best to achieve a good result at the EWS european competitions and in the French Enduro Series”.
