Andreu Lacondeguy goes deep south into Peru // PEROOTS

Andreu has carved a niche into MTB forever. With a style that defines big.

Be it on slopestyle courses or mountain ranges, his ability to hit it harder, faster and bigger than most ensures any edit that drops will be wild. Strap in for a journey in the Peruvian high country, fifteen minutes of colour, culture, smiles and of course epic riding down descents that defy imagination.

“It’s been a few years since we planned a trip to South America. I wanted to take my bike to a different place, get out of the routine and explore, since I think that’s the definition of our sport. The red dirt was perfect, I was riding lines that gave me a feeling I had never felt on a bike before. The length of the lines made me feel like I was skiing or snowboarding. That’s something I’ve been looking to do for many years, and I was finally able to do it here by making long turns on a steep virgin slope. This trip to Peru was the best experience of my life, not only for riding which was without a doubt the best thing I’ve ever done, but also because I got to know a wonderful country full of amazing people! From my point of view, this is what we need in mountain biking, more exploring, more big mountains, more freeriding!”
