After an incredible Slopestyle competition for the girls at the weekend, attention turns to the pipe. Halfpipe has been at the Olympics since 1998 and has seen some special riding but the contest in Sochi promises to be one of the best. The level of competition is expected to be super high and we’ve compiled a list of the favourites to take home gold on Wednesday.

The Women’s competition will follow the same format as the men’s contest but will take place the day after on Wednesday 12 February 2013. Like the guys, they’ll be aiming to finish in the top six in the qualification round and go straight to the finals. Those that miss out will have another chance in the semi-finals that follow, with the best six going through to the evening’s final.
