"The opportunity to include community-created content in the next chapter of the Trials story was really important to us," said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. "The fans have definitely helped make the game the great success that it is, whether voting for us as the Best Downloadable Game in the Xbox LIVE poll, or by telling their friends how addictive the game is.
"We would not have achieved one million sales of the game if not for all this great support, so this contest and the inclusion of community tracks in the next DLC, was one way for us to say thank you to all our fans."
