Some of you may have noticed last week there was a post
that mentioned that Andreu Lacondeguy was now riding for YT-Industries. It's now official, we received this today:Barcelona, Spain, October, 24th 2011 –
As of right now, l'enfant terrible of the freeride scene, Catalan Andreu Lacondeguy is riding with a new bike sponsor. YT has signed the young Spaniard and is looking forward to working with one of the most colorful personalities of the mountain bike scene.
The 22 year-old freerider from Barcelona is definitely the most flamboyant of mountain bike stars. Andreu is well known for his exceptionally high, far and super extended supermans, unmatched in style and elegance. This is why Andreu’s bikes are always under a bit more stress than those of other freeriders and have to withstand extreme gravity forces; one of several reasons why Andreu chose YT-Industries, a brand that stands for quality and innovation.
|I feel really great on the new bikes. Especially the Dirt Love looks really cool and is great to ride. Perfect for big jumps, just like a dirt jump bike has to be! It wasn't that easy to find a brand that fits my style perfectly. But when I looked at the 2012 YT-models, I found some amazing bikes that almost seemed to be custom-made for me. YT was definitely the right choice. - Andreu Lacondeguy|
The young team of the bike manufacturer from Forchheim, Germany, (which has been awarded several prizes for their unconventional and innovative design) is also looking forward to the cooperation with Andreu Lacondeguy.
|We are extremely proud Andreu chose us as his new sponsor because of our products. We can't wait to work with him! Anyone who knows us knows that Andreu and YT are the perfect match. Just like him, our brand is kind of unconventional and a bit different. - Markus Flossmann, YT-Industries' CEO|
For the next season, Andreu will ride on the YT-models DIRT LOVE, PLAY and TUES 2.0. and to embrace his style completely at every point, Andreu will actively participate in development these bikes. For YT and Andreu the 2012 season can already begin!
