Kevin is King

Kevin Roland showed the world who is the King of freestyle when he won the King of Style 2010 earlier on tonight. Kevin, who recently won double X-games gold’s in Super Pipe, beat the entire freestyle elite who had gathered in Stockholm to battle for the crown.

For the first time in it’s five year history the competition was run in a head to head format. On his way to the final round Kevin knocked out great names such as Jon Olsson and last years winner Andreas Håtveit. At the end it was down to Kevin and Elias Ambühl who was first out and fell. Kevin just had to land anything to snatch the victory. He played it safe and went for a flat/backflip 360, for a while it looked like he was loosing control,but he got it together and made the landing, for a $10 000 prize check.
