As you may already know, Martin Soderstrom broke his leg on the last jump of his final run at the Crankworx Joyride competition and will most likely be out for the rest of the season. Martin broke his tibia and fibula, just above his the ankle, and was rushed to Vancouver for emergency surgery Saturday night. We would like to thank the entire Crankworx crew, the staff at Whistler Medical Clinic as well all the fans who have expressed concern for all of their your support. Martin will be staying in Vancouver for the rest of the week until he gets the doctor’s okay to fly back home to Sweden.

    His final run was just beyond ridiculous and it was so sad to see it end like that instead of an epic hairs-width judging decision to separate him and Semenuk.

    Healing vibes to the lad.
