Charlotte Bankes has tied on to where she stopped at the Santa weekend in Montafon.

After celebrating a successful debut on the World Cup circuit finishing ninth in the single race event on the Seebliga, the 18-year-old kept hold of the momentum celebrating back-to-back wins at the two Europa Cup races held last Saturday and Sunday.

Luca Berg (GER) took Silver twice while Maria Ramberger (AUT) and Sofia Belingheri each placed third once.

On the men's side of things, current World Cup leader Markus Schairer (AUT) won the first event ahead of Michal Novotny (CZE) and Jerome Lyman (SUI) while David Speiser (GER) clinched the second race relegating Lyman and Jussi Taka (FIN) to second and third respectively.

After hosting the SBX World Cup opening Montafon also organised the season's first SBX Europa Cup races.

The next SBX races will take place Dec 20 and 21 with Lake Louise hosting some World Cup action and Cortina d'Ampezzo the next Europa Cup stop.
