World Championship gold medallists maintained their form as the Para Snowboard World Cup season resumed in La Molina in Spain.

Action got underway today at the third leg of the campaign with snowboard cross, after poor weather caused a 24-hour delay to competition.

Finland's Matti Suur-Hamari clinched the men's SB-LL2 title after doing the same at the World Championships in Big White in Canada earlier this month.

He defeated American Paralympic champion Evan Strong in a repeat of the Big White final, with the Finn competing at the World Cup for the first time this term.

Britain's Owen Pick claimed his first World Cup podium finish, beating American Keith Gabel to bronze.

Dutch snowboarder Lisa Bunschoten won the women's SB-LL2 as she defeated Spain's home rider Astrid Fina Paredes.

In the men's SB-LL1, Dutchman Chris Vos beat Reinhold Schett of Austria to gold, just as he had done at Big White.

Mark Mann secured bronze.

American Mike Minor defeated Manuel Pozzerle of Italy in the men's SB-UL final, with France's Maxime Montaggioni taking bronze.

Peggy Martin also claimed a US win as she won the women's SB-UL.

France’s Cecile Hernandez-Cervellon collected the win in the women’s SB-LL1.

Action continues tomorrow with second snowboard cross races.
