Jacobellis Back On Top



BAD GASTEIN Austria-U.S. Snowboarding's Lindsey Jacobellis (Stratton Mountain, VT) threw down the gauntlet Sunday to win a World Cup snowboardcross race in Bad Gastein one day after finishing third.


"It's good to be back on top again," Jacobellis said. "It was a very fast course and there were few lines you could take, so it made it extremely aggressive in the heats."

Jacobellis, who marked her 15th career snowboardcross win in the World Cup, said that focus was the key in getting the win.

"A lot of people were fighting for one line and it was pretty intense. I had to really hold strong to make sure I kept my line and was focused on what I was doing," Jacobellis said.

Jacobellis will skip the World Championships, returning to the U.S. to focus on the upcoming X Games where she will defend her gold medal.

"I want to go home and relax and get my legs ready so I can be fresh and give it my best for X Games," Jacobellis said. "It's a very long glidy course that takes a lot of leg strength and there are huge jumps so you need all the help you can get."
