Kober wins in Landgraaf

In the women's heats Germany's Amelie Kober won, followed by Austrians Doris Guenther in second and Claudia Riegler in third. No U.S. women qualified for finals. Erica Mueller (Steamboat Springs, CO) was 25th and Michelle Gorgone (Boston, MA) was 28th.

"Michelle was sixth after the first qualification run. But, if you make one small mistake, then it's over because there is no margin for error. In that second run she did have a small mistake, so it was game over," Wengelin said. "But she is riding super well and she's focused."

The alpine snowboarding World Cup season continues Dec. 6 in Limone Piemonte, Italy, for the first of five Olympic qualification events for U.S. athletes. The Olympic Team will be named Jan. 25.
