The YT Mob is a title winning professional Mountain Bike racing team that contests the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup.

In the past 20 years there have only been three occasions where the winning man of the opening round goes on to win the overall series, and all three times that was Aaron Gwin, so his rivals will be fully aware that ‘the boss’ has started his season with typical strength and precision.
