Martin Söderström announced on social media that he has chosen to step back from professional riding after an illustrious 15-year career.
The stylish slopestyle and freeride athlete was one of the first Swedish riders to make his mark on the international cycling world, paving the way for younger riders like Emil Johansson, who credits Söderström as one of his biggest riding influences. From the FMB World Tour and Joyride to Rampage, Söderström has racked up a long list of slopestyle podiums, video parts, and so many more achievements within the sport in the nearly two decades since a skatepark opened in his hometown and he there discovered the joy of riding on two wheels.
We at Pinkbike would like to extend our congratulations to Martin for an incredible career. It's been a joy to watch, and we can't wait to see what's next.
