SBJ Olympics writer Tripp Mickle talks with Nick Sargent, head of global alliance and partnerships for Burton Snowboards, at the bottom of the halfpipe before Tuesday's men's gold-medal final. Among the topics are the condition of the Sochi halfpipe, predictions for Wednesday's women's halfpipe, the Olympics in general and Burton's U.S. Open next month in Vail.

"The pipe really needs some cold weather for the ice crystals to connect. But the reality is they're doing all they can do to keep the pipe in rideable condition."

"It's a stocked women's house tomorrow night. … The conditions of the pipe are really going to dictate the riding level and what they're able to achieve.'

"The U.S. Open, our second year in Vail … on the heels of an Olympics, it's really just pandemonium. You get all the riders. We'll have an Olympic field at the Open, all coming to Vail, having a great time."
