Jacobellis Wins World Cup

 
 
BAD GASTEIN, Austria (Jan. 13) - Reigning snowboardcross World Cup and world champion Lindsey Jacobellis (Stratton Mountain, VT) won the women's competition Sunday on an exciting and foggy day of World Cup racing.

"It was difficult to see”, Jacobellis said. "In the last two runs I couldn't tell where people were. You had to concentrate on what you are doing. In the final, I just noticed after the last turn that I'm really leading.”

Jacobellis finished ahead of Switzerland's Mellie Francon and Olympic champion Tanja Frieden on a foggy race course that made the competition more challenging.

"It was great. Lindsey was super strong all day. She hadn't been qualifying as fast recently but in the last two events she qualified really fast, which is great to see her riding a lot faster. In the finals, she just kept winning," said Head Coach Peter Foley.

"She's riding her fastest and getting faster and she's a total gamer when it comes to being in the finals. She doesn't like to get beaten at all."

The U.S. snowboardcross team plans to compete in the winter X Games, which run Jan. 23-27, before resuming World Cup racing in Sungwoo, Korea, Feb. 15.

"We're hoping to do better than that, really. We have such depth on the men's side and I feel like we really should have at least two people in the final. It's never easy to do because there's a lot that's outside your control, but I feel like we're that strong to be in that position. We can do better," Foley said.
