With the Olympics just around the corner there is obviously huge interest in every RS:X event. The Princess Sofia Trophy is one of the top events on the calendar so its great news for the UK to see Nick Dempsey on top at the half way stage.

Nick started really well with 2 straight bullets on day 1, making his intentions clear from the beginning. Day 2 however the Spaniard Ivan Pastor made a stunning comeback with 2 of his own bullets, to pull ahead. Nick however is used to the pressure at this level and came back even stronger to win both races today and re-take the lead. With 3 more days of competition however it looks like these 2 will be fighting to the end.

In the women\'s the young Spanish rider Marina Alabau is currently on top. She has been on great form through this year and is definitely looking like a hot favorite for the summer games. Hot on her heels is the legendary Alessandra Sensini, breathing down her neck with only 1 point between.

Stay tuned for the final results on Friday.
