Andreu Lacondeguy and the crew build some all mighty booters in La Fenasosa bike park near Alicante, Spain.
The Herculean Lacondeguy wastes no time in firing his Kona (this was filmed last year pre-Mondraker) skywards over the Spanish earthworks and executing “The Big Tricks”
On a side note, eagle eyed cherries amongst you might remember La Fenasosa from Rowan Sorrell’s rough guide to La Fenasosa .
(It’s also where Sram had the Boxxer press camp years ago), well worth a look if you’re in the area.
The fact that no jump is big enough for Andreu is not really news to anyone. The course that was built at La Fenasosa near the city of Alicante in Spain is ample proof of that, since the dimensions are according to his taste: huge. Andreu gets rip jumps that were built specifically according to his wishes and are the perfect fit for him and his never-before seen stunts on a massive scale. After three days of building, it is clear to see how much fun he has on his very own perfect playground: one trick is more mind-blowing than the next – be it a nacnac flatspin, backflip tsunami or a double backflip.
The makers of the clip, Black Media, are a production crew that Andreau co-founded himself. Together with his friends Sebas Romero (a well-known action sports and lifestyle photographer), Pablo Moreno (a freelance editor, photographer and freerider), as well as Mito and Javi Echevarria, they are also the producers and masterminds behind the first We Are Family film.
As the clip was shot last year, we still see Andreu riding his old Kona bike. Ever since the Red Bull Rampage, he has been tricking it on his brand new Mondraker as you’ll be able to see in his upcoming video projects. Only a few weeks ago, Andreu traveled over the ocean to visit Cam White and rip the massive jumps in his Australian backyard. The action coming to your screen from down under will definitely be something to gasp at. On top of that, Andreu obviously won’t miss the chance to ride Masters of Dirt in Graz, Vienna and Ljubljana. So there is plenty of Andreu action coming our way in 2011!
