Arguably the most dominant snowboardcross rider in the business, Lindsey Jacobellis started racing when she was 11 at a local event held on her home turf at Stratton Mountain. Just four years later she was invited to compete in the X Games. 

With a silver medal from the 2006 Torino Olympics, 26 World Cup wins, ten X Games medals (eight of which are gold) and numerous World Cup podiums, it is clear why Jacobellis has a strong hold on women’s snowboardcross. She has been dominating the circuit for almost eight straight seasons.

The 2012 season brought three consecutive World Cup wins to Jacobellis before a knee injury during X Games practice forced her to miss a chance at her fifth-straight gold.

Jacobellis took nearly two years off snow to recover from that knee injury, but she returned just in time to make the 2014 Olympic team. She came into the season strong, winning the Lake Louise World Cup and taking back-to-back third-place finishes in Vallnord, Andorra. In January, Lindsey claimed her eighth X Games gold medal before heading into her third Olympic games. Once in Sochi, Jacobellis won all her heats with authority until an unfortunate crash took her out of the medal round and she was forced to settle for seventh. Undeterred, Jacobellis finished the World Cup season strong with a second place at La Moline, Spain, putting her in second overall for the season.

FIRST TRACKS
Big brother "Benny" introduced Lindsey to riding in 1996. Now she's won the X Games more than anyone else, owns three World Championship titles and an Olympic silver medal. You could also credit Stratton Mountain School for allowing her to enroll in a program that allows students to ride everyday and go to high school.

OFF THE SNOW
When she’s not riding or training, you can find Jacobellis indulging in fashion, shoe collecting, watching movies and hanging out with her friends down in Encinitas.
