Andreu Lacondeguy has for the last six years been one of the biggest profiles in the MTB freeride world, and his ability to ride massive lines with style and comfort is unparalleled.
In the beginning of 2012 freeride mountainbiker Andreu Lacondeguy bought a 110 acre FMX compound from his long time idol Edgar Torrenteras. Andreu rebuilt the compound to feature some of the biggest jumps for mountain bikes ever seen.
The start ramp stretches 14 meter over ground and is intimidating to even the most experienced riders. Andreu has an extreme talent for anything on two wheels, so it's natural for him to also enjoy an occasional FMX session at the compound. This ability to switch comfortably between different disciplines gives Andreu a unique advantage when pushing the envelope for how big you can go on a bicycle.
The short film; Lacon de Catalonia, portraits one of freestyle mountain biking’s biggest profiles on his home turf enjoying what he likes the most, pushing himself towards new levels of airtime and tricks.
