2 years after joining Hyper Bikes, Zink lands a ride with fast-growing YT Industries, joining Andreu Lacondeguy and Yannick Granieri to form one of freeride's most dynamic and exciting trios. We can't wait to see what these guys will get up to! And if Cam gets a signature model from YT, that should be an altogether other beast than that Walmart bike, too...


Press release:

Cam Zink will be bringing his incredible skills and fearless riding style to YT Industries, joining Andreu Lacondeguy and Yannick Granieri to form a true Factory Freeride Team. But it wasn't just the massive backflip at this year's Red Bull Rampage that convinced YT Industries to sign Cam Zink to the team; it was his passion for the sport, and his dedication to having a great time both on and off of the bike that convinced them that Zink would be an excellent addition to the team.

"If you have an opportunity to ride YT bikes why wouldn't you? Sickest bikes in the world and the only mountain bike brand that is run by a bunch of crazy misfits compared to the rest of the industry." - Cam Zink

"Even before his backflip at Rampage, Cam was already at the top of our list of athletes we wanted to add to the team, especially as an ambassador for the American market. Even though we are still in the planning and analysis phase for this step over the Atlantic, there was a short moment when we were able to get the chance to work with one of the most outstanding characters in the mountain bike circus. We decided to sign Cam to the team and will now be working to make our bikes available in the U.S. market." - Markus Flossmann, CEO and founder of YT Industries

"After Andreu and Yannick this is a huge step for us, and I was excited when we managed to get Cam signed up to the team. He just fits in with YT; the way he sees mountain biking and his style are like the missing pieces of the puzzle. Cam will not just help us to develop the brand, he will also be a very important part of the development of new bikes in the future. Cam knows more about bikes, geometry and kinematics than most people would guess." - Florian Lehmann, Marketing Manager, YT Industries
