Realistically YT makes 3 models. A DH bike, an enduro bike, and a dirt jumper. Different build kits really don't constitute additional models. Neither does carbon/aluminum if it's essentially the same bike just made of different materials.

Does anyone really make bike buying decisions based on which riders the company sponsors? That sounds absurd to me that people make decisions worth many thousands of dollars based on who rides what. I mean personally I do think its very important for bike companies to get their bikes under some top level riders just to prove the capabilities of their bikes, but I could care less which specific riders it is. If I'm buying a DH bike I would like see the rig I'm buying be proven under the toughest conditions on the WC circuit. But why do I care if its a superstar like Sam Hill, Gee, or Gwin, or some second tier rider like Matt Simmonds or George Braningan. Everyone knows those guys win because they are awesome, not because of the specific bike they ride. Take YT for instance. Are people really buying the bikes because they sponsor Zink, McGarry, and Andreu? And do you think they'd really sell more it they sign Claw or Norbs? Or are they buying the bikes because they are now known to be solid bikes are a good price? I say its the latter because before YT, Zink has ridden both Corsair and Hyper bikes and I didn't see those bikes flying off the shelves even though Zink was killing it on them. Same with McGarry. Wasn't he on a Diamondback until last year? Didn't see many of those around either.

Unofficial EWS Privateer of the Year
I guess in a literal sense a true privateer would not have any sponsors. But in general when people talk about privateers in mountain biking it just means someone who is not on a team and is largely funding their riding and training on their own. Riders can have sponsors who help out with equipment/support and still be considered privateers.

Photo Epic and Video: Red Bull Hardline 2015
Alot of people have been saying that bit these events are quite different. Those guys certainly have the balls to hit big jumps but everything else is much different. There are some really technical sections of track here that even the best DH racers have trouble with. Events like rampage are sick but but they aren't to technical overall. The jumps and drops at rampage are massive but the lines are pretty buffed out. Those free ride guys I'm sure could rude the track but I'm not sure they have an advantage over the DH guys on a track like this.

Red Bull Hardline: Gee Atherton POV Course Preview
No I don't believe the event is steamed live. They will likely release an extended highlight/replay type video at some point.
