Olympic medalists Seth Wescott and Lindsey Jacobellis, along with seven-time X Games gold medalist Nate Holland of Squaw Valley, headline U.S. Snowboarding’s 2013-14 snowboardcross team named before the opening FIS World Cup this weekend.
The team just capped off a month of training, including an on-snow camp at the Gorgoza Park tubing hill in Park City, followed by training in Soelden, Austria. The World Cup season opens in Montafon, Austria, Dec. 5-7.
“The Camp at Gorgoza was a huge success,” said Peter Foley, head U.S. Snowboard coach. “We were able to do an incredible volume of quality runs with timing and video. We were also able to do some amazing race simulations. We feel like this camp put us way ahead of where we’ve ever been for this time of year.”
Both Wescott and Jacobellis have made successful returns to snow following injuries.
Veteran Faye Gulini of Salt Lake City capitalized on a strong season to move up to the A Team, as she won the U.S. title with her victory at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Canyons Resort. Nick Baumgartner, meanwhile, scored two 2012-13 World Cup podiums to lead the USA in the standings in fifth.
The veteran team added one newcomer, Trevor Jacob of Golden City, Calif., following his breakout rookie season where he landed two top-10 World Cups and took the U.S. title with a win in the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix.
The 2014 Olympic Team will be nominated around Jan. 22.
