Spain's Eguibar, France's Moenne Loccoz win snowboardcross World Cup titles


LA MOLINA, Spain — Lucas Eguibar of Spain and Nelly Moenne Loccoz of France claimed the overall snowboardcross World Cup titles on Saturday despite not winning the third and final race of the season in the Spanish Pyrenees.

Christopher Robanske of Canada won the men's race ahead of American Alex Deibold. The 21-year-old Eguibar didn't advance past the quarterfinals, but celebrated the crystal globe trophy with his home fans after his nearest rivals failed to catch him in the points standings.

Moenne Loccoz wrapped up the women's title after finishing second behind race winner and countrywoman Charlotte Bankes.

Riders faced heavy snow and gusting winds throughout the day.
