- Lluis and Andreu Lacondeguy Join the Ranks of Freeriding’s Elite –
KonaWorld (October 4, 2006) – The last time a pair of European brothers had this kind of impact, they came paired with Duck Hunt. In a move that injects our freeride team with explosive energy and raw talent, Kona is proud to announce the signing of Lluis and Andreu Lacondeguy to the Clump.
No longer up and comers, the Lacondeguy brothers burst onto the dirt jump scene in 2006 with podium finishes at the Austrian King of Dirt, Red Bull Trailfox, Braun 26TRIX, Red Bull District Ride Catania and Red Bull District Ride OVERALL.
John Cowan, dirt jump legend and Clump Team Manager, said he is expecting big things from the Lacondeguys.
“We've been scouting European riders for a while, and the Lacondeguy brothers are at the top of the heap; young and ready to rip,” said Cowan. “With the support of the Kona Clump team, they’ll push the level for sure."
“Lluis and Andreu know slopestyle; they’re built for it, and it’s where the sport is headed. Slopestyle is going huge right now, and it’s going to be a big part of freeriding in the future. The Lacondeguy brothers are young and raw, and they’ll be able to hone their skills and progress as they compete."
So, as we say to all our new recruits, let the hazing begin.
