Three-time Olympian Lindsey Jacobllis is the most dominant snowboardcross rider in history; she has already written an impressive resume for herself and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Jacobellis is a two-time junior world champion, four-time world champion, Olympic silver medalist and 10-time X Games gold medalist.
The Stratton Mountain School alum has 27 World Cup wins and 43 total podium finishes in 72 starts--more than any other snowboardcross racer on the planet. She earned her Olympic medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and her ten X Games gold medals is the most won by a woman in X Games history (with 12 overall medals she also holds the third-most medals by a snowboarder, behind Shaun White and Kelly Clark).
After collecting her fourth World Championships title in 2015, Jacobellis went on to have a stellar 2016 season--she won yet another X Games gold medal and never finished outside the top ten on the World Cup circuit, collecting podium finishes in Veysonnaz and Montafon.
Big brother "Benny" introduced Lindsey to riding in 1996. She attended Stratton Mountain School in Vermont and was a member of the U.S. Snowboarding team by age 17.
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. She is an avid surfer and you can find her racking up waves at Ponto in Carlsbad, CA.
