​The Athlete Edits: Andreu Lacondeguy x Esperanto

Andreu Lacondeguy’s story is probably the one that resonates the most with the theme of Esperanto. Growing up in a tiny beach town north of Barcelona, Spain, Lacondeguy’s career has touched pretty much every major part of freeride mountain biking that has existed over the past two decades, taking him all across the world. When he first came to the United States with his brother to ride bikes, he barely spoke a word of English. The bike became a way to connect with others, and that led to the massively successful career he has enjoyed through today, including a Rampage title, a Crankworx title, multiple medals at X-Games and other freestyle events, and becoming a founding member of the legendary FEST Series. These days, when he's not traveling, the Ride Concepts athlete has been busy digging in his backyard – so of course we couldn’t resist linking up with him, Kurt Sorge, and Brage Vestavik for a springtime session for Esperanto. Learn more about Andreu’s story, his riding, and the film in his Esperanto athlete edit, and make sure to check out tour stops near you and buy tickets at
