Aussie rider Sakakibara racked up four World Cup victories and two second-place finishes en route to back-to-back World Cup titles. With more than 1,300 more points than her closest challenger, she's undoubtedly the favorite in the women's event, though reigning Olympic champion Shriever always steps up on the big stage. Alise Willoughby, currently ranked at No.3, will have the crowd behind her.

Mahieu led a French one-two in the World Cup, amassing almost 400 more points than his compatriot Joris Daudet. However, Daudet broke his collarbone in February, robbing him of a good chunk of the season, and he's primed to make up for lost time at Rock Hill.
