Onboard will be bringing you full live coverage of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games. Read on for a schedule of the freestyle snowboarding events at the Games.
After years of hype, chat and endless speculation, the Olympic madness is almost upon us. Sochi 2014 will be the 5th Olympic games to include freestyle snowboarding and this year, adds slopestyle to the roster.
While many have been quick to voice their opinions on all things to do with snowboarding and the Olympics – be it FIS’ control, poor course design or the death of style in contest snowboarding – what is certain is that the events that unfold over the course of the next week or so, will influence snowboarding in one way or another.
We, for one, will be watching intently. With Torstein Horgmo already out of the running for slopestyle, Mark McMorris and Seb Toots nursing niggling injuries, dark horses lurking in the start gates and Shuan White vying for repeat gold medals in both halfpipe and slopestyle, there will certainly be no shortage of drama when the first rider drops in early on Sunday morning.Via Sage Kotsenburg: View from the last knuckle in the slope course here in Sochi, not bad!! #Spoice #RushinAroundRussia #SkimMilk #ShouldaWorkedOut #NoVegetables
