Although it’s not actually been officially confirmed yet the interwebs and bookfaces are full of the rumour that top rider Aaron Gwin, formerly of Specialized has signed with direct sales bike manufacturer YT Industries.
Interestingly Gwin has only ever ridden for US based companies and so this liaison with German company YT Industries is a first for him.
Some of his other minor sponsors are TRP Brakes, Onza Tyres, Alpine Star Clothing and HT Pedals, Ethirteen, Renthal, SDG, Motorex, ODI & Cane Creek.
And if you need reminding it’s Gwin who did this last year at Leogang.
