(AP) The ambitious slopestyle course that sent Shaun White sprinting for the serenity of the halfpipe isn't the only Olympic event at Sochi's Extreme Park that is turning heads.

The moguls course has also drawn mixed reviews, particularly from western riders who were initially concerned the mixture of bumps and jumps were a bit too aggressive.

Patrick Deneen says "there are a lot of issues with the course" but credited officials for working to smooth out the rough edges before women's qualifying begins on Thursday.

The American wiped out after slamming into the second of the course's two jumps on Tuesday but was able to practice Wednesday and plans to be ready when the men get underway next week.
