Sochi Men's Mogul Event - Can Anybody Beat Bilodeau and Kingsbury?

By February 9, 2014

Follow me on:

In Freestyle skiing, it's the men's turn to bump and jump on Monday as they take on the 2014 Sochi moguls course.

While there are many possibilities as to whom will end up on the men's podium I think this comes down to a big fight for the bronze medal. The boys from Canada, Alex Bilodeau and Mikael Kingsbury, will again battle each other for the top spot and the rest of the world can have the third step.

It just seems so amazing that these two can be so dominant, but take a look at every one of the 2014 men's mogul competitions leading up the Sochi Olympic.

In the six World Cup Mogul events of 2014 it was Kingsbury 1st, Bilodeau 2nd in the first three events; then Bilodeau 1st, Kingsbury 2nd in the next two and finally, Bilodeau 1st, Patrick Deneen 2nd in the last competition with Kingsbury in an uncharacteristic 6th place.

I know Patrick Deneen and Bradley Wilson will both be charging for a spot on the podium and at last season's Sochi test Mogul event Deneen was second to Kingsbury - so just maybe.

That said, my Podium Picks:
