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?
