Jacobellis, Holland win Winter X

ASPEN — Gold medals in snowboardcross at the Winter X Games went to a pair of familiar faces Friday: Lindsey Jacobellis and Nate Holland.

The perfect way to head over to Sochi, where both will be on the U.S. Olympic team.

Jacobellis won her eighth title. She is back to 100 percent after a pair of knee operations over the last two years.

Jacobellis finished fifth in Vancouver and second in Turin after giving away the gold when she fell on a celebratory jump near the bottom of the course.

Holland is still nursing a broken collarbone back to full strength. He overcame the flu to win his seventh title in an event that was taken off the program for 2013 but returned this year. Holland finished 14th and fourth at the last two Olympics.
