Jacobellis wins in WC snowboardcross opener

Three-time X Games gold medalist Lindsey Jacobellis busted open the snowboardcross World Cup season in a way only she could: dominating a stacked international field to win the first race in the eight-competition season schedule in Chapelco, Argentina, on Saturday. The win marked Jacobellis' 15th World Cup career victory.
    "I'm happy. I'm a competitive girl so if I start I want to win," Jacobellis said. "Now, I can go home and tell my coach that he did a great job."
    Nick Baumgartner, who won his first World Cup last season in Lake Placid, led the U.S. men in fourth.
