Erik Irmisch is part of the YT family since 2010 and is supporting us not only as a team rider. Check out his latest edit and a tiny interview we did with him lately.

“Of course I would have liked to defend my title, unfortunately at Rampage you have to take things as they come” said YT team rider Andreu Lacondeguy about his 2nd place – as defending champ he was under a lot of pressure!
The front line –that was an understatement… this place is insane! We cracked into the first day on set at Rampage fresh and early.
Well, well, well… here I am on a rather large plane –bound for Utah. YT Industries have selected me for the gig of Rampage Reporter for the 10th Edition of RedBull Rampage.
Over the last few days we have received several hundred applications. We are proud to be able to share some of them with you today.
