Lacondeguy and Pardal Smashing the Lousã Bike Park - Video

Sep 20, 2017
by Red Bull Bike  

Located in central Portugal, Lousã Bike Park features over 25 downhill and all-mountain trails including no fewer than three Portuguese national-level DH tracks. Who better to show us around then than Portugal's top DH rider, Francisco Pardal? Oh, and we sent Andreu Lacondeguy along for the ride too.

bigquotesI can say that I have been a fan of Andreu for some time now. He has his very own style of riding, really fast and loose. His flow and style on the jumps is unbelievable.

I always had this idea of inviting a Red Bull rider to come film with me in my tracks and some other ones in Lousã, Portugal. Fortunately, Andreu accepted the invitation, which was incredible. I knew right away that the video we were going to make would be wild, fast and loose, with myself being a downhill rider and himself a freeride one. A few days later I was told Rupert Walker was going to be filming the project and he is one of the most bad-ass filmmakers there is in downhill and freeride.

Lousã and Louzanpark are like my second home. I have a lot of friends there and it’s where I started doing downhill back in 2005. We try and up the level of Louzanpark every year! Plenty of athletes from abroad enjoy our tracks and way of living.

 @t1000: He is fast, but not WC fast. This edits are made so it looks like he is going at match speed at all times. Also you can go faster if you are sessioning for a video than racing a whole track a few laps

 Yup seems most of the freeride type are still holding strong on 26" in 2017.

I was skeptical about treks teams new session parks but I got a close up glimpse of rdog's latest bike and they're still getting custom 26" frames.

 Las time I checked he was using 27,5 on the front and 26 on the back

 Lacondeguy is a straight up hard charging , bad arse mofo on a bike, more moto than moto itself. Fuckin' Braaaaaaaaaappp.

 Can't The Mob host Lacondeguy for some guest appearances on the World Cup? It would be exciting, no matter what the result is.
  • + 1
 I don't know exactly how it all works, but I think a rider has to earn points in smaller races before being able to race a WC, so he couldn't just show up and be guaranteed a spot. I could be wrong though.
