At YT they like to raise the bar a bit – when developing bikes as well as when it comes to presenting them to the world. At the kick-off of the new CAPRA campaign everybody knew that YT had to go big. Whatever it was, it had to go off. 
So, they faced the task of putting together a campaign that would top everything they’ve done in the past. Challenge accepted! What followed was a typical YT story, a spark of inspiration turned into a creative wildfire as the craziest ideas quickly became reality.

Here some of Backstage’ shots, look at all of them and reads the interview on
