Congratulation Adrien Loron.
In words of 2013 winner Martin Soderstrom, the name of the game in Dual Speed & Style is: “go fast and do tricks.” It’s easier said than done.
The athlete to make it down the course the fastest wins the speed points, but while speed ultimately decides the victor, it by no means trumps style. Racers earn a time credit for points accrued via adding staple slopestyle tricks mid-race, like Supermans, backflips and barspins. This event offers a glimpse of the future of freestyle with riders breaking into the slopestyle scene hitting this course first. Come race time, it all comes to a head, with fresh blood and seasoned pros racing side-by-side through tricked-out dual tracks. Dirt will fly, tricks will roll and one rider will emerge the ultimate speed and style. And if the van Steenbergens are there, that arrival might just be delivered via a racing double backflip.
