Jacobellis wins Quebec boardercross
Aspen, CO Colorado
STONEHAM, Quebec ” American star Lindsey Jacobellis rode to her fourth World Cup snowboarding victory of the season Friday night, winning the boardercross event.
“It felt great to win another World Cup. This course was very short so you had to get your passing done and get out in front really quickly because you could run out of track to make any passes,” Jacobellis said. “I felt really good going into this contest. I’m feeling really confident.”
Jacobellis extended her lead in the overall World Cup standings and moved within 150 points of boardercross leader Maelle Ricker, the Canadian who finished second Friday, in the SBX World Cup.
World Cup boardercross leader Pierre Vaultier won the men’s competition, leading a French sweep of the first three spots. Paul-Henri Delerue was second, followed by Vincent Valery.
When asked if he is receiving any insider information on the terrain, Aleksander Aamodt Kilde — the boyfriend of Edwards’ own Mikaela Shiffrin — chuckled and replied, “You probably think so, but I actually I don’t.”
