You better believe Martin Soderstrom is stoked to have won the heated Speed and Style competition, especially since he’s been laid up with injuries for the better part of the past two years. "This is what you're doing all the rehab for and all the hard hours just being on the couch when you want to be with your friends riding," Soederstroem told Bike after his victory. "This makes it all worth it."

Adrien Loron of France took second while Stoppie Sultan Bernard Kerr repeated the third-place finish he scored in the Whip-Off.
