Direct to consumer is great … for the consumer. But it isn’t easy to test bikes when they’re only available online. When you’re dropping a few grand on a mountain bike, it’s nice to be able to ride it first. YT, one of the most sought after direct-to-consumer brands, is going to be touring the world in an effort to put as many riders on YTs as possible. Yes, the world.

YT is a bike manufacturer first and foremost, but the reason its name is known around the world is also because of the YT athletes. This year is YT’s tenth anniversary, and in celebration a ‘family reunion‘ will be held at the Ostenohe Bike Park in Germany. And it isn’t just for YT athletes. The public is welcome to test out YT bikes, chat with the YT Mob and drink beer with athletes and YT insiders.

If you can’t make it to the family reunion, don’t worry, YT will be towing its Jeffsy, Capra and Tues to a myriad of events on our own continent (and a few others) throughout the year. Here is the full list of stops.
