by 0

As per the rumours, Andreu Lacondeguy is leaving YT for pastures new. Who is he riding for next year?

The press release from YT reads:

The time has come for both Andreu Lacondeguy and YT to part ways. Andreu signed with YT eight years ago and it has been a hell of a ride since then. YT Industries thanks Andreu, for all the Good Times and wishes him nothing other than the best for the future.

“Eight years ago you chose Good Times & have since then contributed significantly to the development of our brand. You took the sport to the next level and became an inspiration to a whole generation of freeride mountain bikers. You have redefined Rampage with us, celebrated successes at the X-Games & other contests like Fest Series and you presented us with the craziest edits! There are so many other great moments that we shared with you and they’ll always be part of our history! You will always be a part of the #YTFAMILY, we wish you all the best for your new chapter! See you in the mountains buddy!”

Over on Instagram, Lacondeguy says:

It feels weird to say that I will not longer ride for @yt_industries in 2020. Its been a crazy ride! Thank you for the last 8 years! From Bergline , xgames and all those crazy dirt jump comps to the top of rampage and the creation of the Fest Series… thanks for being there and thanks for the support , I wish you guys the best in the future! Its now time for me to take a step forward and switch my program to something new! Thanks for the good times guys , see you in the mountains!

Lacondeguy certainly knows how to lay it all on the line, and his wild run at Rampage 2019 was surely one of the greatest ever. Watch this space and let’s see where he goes. Will it be Commencal as rumoured?

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
