Carl has had an Aussie on the team for over ten years. Is that a good or bad thing?

In those 10+ years Giant has always had an Aussie in their program and thus Carl has been able to spend probably too much time with three of Australia’s best mountain bikers; Jared Rando, Amiel Cavalier, and Josh Carlson.
