Martin Soderstrom, 1st Place Qualifier at the Claymore Challenge - Martin Soderstrom Qualifies First at the 2012 Claymore Challenge - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

As Aaron Chase put it, Martin Soderstrom 'surgically dismantled' the Claymore Challenge slopestyle course at Highland Mountain today during qualifying. 60 riders dropped in hoping to be one of the final 15 and by the end of the day, Martin was on top. The top 3 from the 2011 Claymore Challenge are automically in the finals which run on Saturday, so stay tuned.

Here's an update regarding some bigger names from one of our guys on site - "Zink went for the glory on both runs trying a frontie on the Geax step up (honestly really should have just gone safe to make finals). I think Andreu tweaked his knee pretty badly. McCaul was a victim of wind on a tailwhip and went down, Messere crashed out too. SO many good europeans, so I'm not surprised that there are some big names that didn't quali."
