In words of past winner Martin Soderstrom, the name of the game in Speed & Style is: “go fast and do tricks.” Easier said than done.
Combining elements of Dual Slalom and Slopestyle, Speed & Style challenges athletes to out-race and out-trick their opponent in this head-to-head format.
Two riders race against each other and try to make it to the finish as quickly as possible while performing the most stylish run. The winner is calculated based on their speed, with additional points awarded for style.
