Andreu Lacondeguy joins Reverse Components
Hailing from Barcelona, Spain, the 32 years old freeride legend Andreu Lacondeguy just signed with Reverse Components. Andreu is one of the most aggressive/stylish riders on the planet. He is a 2013 Munich X-Games bronze medalist in the Mountain Bike Slopestyle event and a Red Bull Rampage Winner in 2014.
Team-mate Nico Vink came to Andreu’s property, known as “The Hole” to do a full re-build of his jump line in celebration of him joining Reverse.
Almost 8 weeks of building and 200hrs of machine time later, they created this bmx-style line of huge jumps, traversing down into the natural bowl, with huge hips and massive takeoffs, designed to maximise air time for tricks.
“I got this property a couple of years ago, we built some jumps and everything, but signing with Reverse Components was the perfect opportunity to get my teammate Nico there, who I think is one of the best builders in the world. Being able to be there with Nico and build the sickest set of jumps I have ever seen was amazing, being able to ride those every day and have those level of jumps in the yard will only make the riding better, I’m super stoked on the opportunity to work with Nico and how the jumps turned out.” – Andreu Lacondeguy
“I first saw Andreu’s backyard a few years ago and was mindblown with the amount of opportunity. The dirt is insane, it’s just perfect. It’s a dream setup for a backyard. The main area is shaped like a natural half pipe with fingers, it’s super cool – the landings are kind of all in place and you need to build take offs. It was like building a big skatepark out of dirt.” – Nico Vink
