Red Bull Berg Line and the 26 world’s best mountainbike slopestyle riders wowed 20,000 spectators in Winterberg, Germany. The brand new gold event of the FMB World Tour could not have been more spectacular. MTB legend Darren Berrecloth created a course of onpresidented dimensions that pushed the riders to their limits. Flip-Whips, Double Backflips and 360 Spinwhips were on today’s schedule.

Andreu Lacondeguy won the judges over with his consistently high level of tricks across the nine obstacles and his double backflip won him the trophy for the Best Trick.

Andreu said: “I heard about the Red Bull Berg Line comp and that the jumps will be huge! That’s exactly my thing! I loved the course and really wanted to win. I crashed in my first final run and Reynolds set the benchmark real high, so I had to go for it in my second run. I said to myself: ‘double or nothing’! And it worked out! I am happy also for my German bike sponsor YT Industries. It was my first big win on the new bike at the biggest German freeride event and they saw me winning!”

Andreu has been quite busy in the last weeks since his season started with two film shootings that will be released in the next few months. This week the Catalan flies to Utah to film for the new Freeride Entertainment movie ‘Where the trail ends’.
