Fancy winning a $4000 Mondraker DH frame? Or scoring a share of $2000 worth of fresh Unit clothing just in time for Christmas?
Australian-based clothing brand Unit Clothing has teamed up with mountainbike brand Mondraker to offer Unit’s Facebook fans a huge giveaway to celebrate their latest high-profile rider signing, MTB freeride legend Andreu Lacondeguy. Have a look inside to see the prize list and then head over to their Facebook page and guess what massive trick Andreu is working on next!
Andreu Lacondeguy is the first one to land a backflip jumping a snow big air ramp on a mountain bike. Exactly a week before his 19th birthday, Kona-Teamrider Andreu made his way into mountain bike history. About 7.000 visitors of the Snowboard Big Air World Cup in Graz paid tribute to the courage of this uprising young Spanish athlete.
Jumping a huge sized snow ramp constructed for skiers & snowboarders is a risky attempt itself. Only a few mountain bikers did take this chance before. The snowy surface in combination with the high speed and the distance of the jump itself are the factors that make it a real stunt.
Andreu Lacondeguy was the top qualifier for the Qashqai dirt jumping event in Milan and he held onto his top spot all the way through the finals. The other eleven finalists made every attempt to unseat Lacondeguy, starting with Trond Hansen, who front flipped the middle jump in his first run and followed it with a 720 attempt.
