 I feel like Soderstrom is under judged alot. He always throws the best tricks and end up in 2nd or 3rd. On that note i wanna see a red bull video of a game of B.I.K.E between Soderstrom and Semenuk.

 I completely agree! What about that 360 double he pulled on that last jump? The dude throws 3 nacs and double whips like they are nothing. Ahh well...a game of B.I.K.E would be suuuuuwweeetttt. I have no idea who I would want to have win though; they are both, in my opinion, the best riders. I love their style.

 Great edit! ANY Metallica song pumps me up to ride way more than all of that new wave electronic dub-step sh*t. Now if it didn't just snow 2 feet last night...

 If that was the final run between rheeder and soderbomb then I would disagree on the result. Other than that, pretty sick to watch even with the alright music

 Soderstrom is Chuck Norris in a bike truth and how the hell did he end up in 3ed judges might have been a lil drunk at this one. Dude throw dub whips and 360 whips not to mention that world record for longest held nac on a bike to date. Stoked for rheeder getting his first 1st place. Game of bike would be sick but do it rheeder Vs. Brandon and Soderstrom Vs. Mike Mo and the winners battle in the final Trek vs.Specialized!

 METALLICA is from SF & are the bay area thrash metal gods! get it!?
  • - 1
 METALLICA are from LA...I don't get it.
  • + 3
 Metallica originated in LA, but they moved to SF in order for Cliff Burton to come into the band in 1982. SF is where it really started the band.

as far as my "get it?!" comment, there were a lot of haters posting earlier that didn't know why METALLICA was chosen for the video. the bands history is predominately SF based. made sense to me.

 Oh my some people get pissed off when they don't get their daily dose of dubstep. On the topic of riding, I still don't understand how Söderström can pull off those 3 inverts so constantly.

 Soderstrom = best style ever.

 Wish there would have been for clips of head to head footage that's what makes this contest unique and the video kinda took away from that
