The Nor-Am Cup concluded last weekend with this seasons final snowboard cross in Big White, which had a massive impact on the Nor-Am Cup standings.

As Roger Carver (USA) won the race in the Canadian ski resort, the 24-year-old was able to pass pre-race ranking's leader Michael Perle (USA) and thus win his career's first Nor-Am title with 1,266 points ahead of James Harris (USA, 1,105) and Perle (972), who sat out the last event.

It was a title which earned Carver a fixed starting spot on the World Cup tour, while second and third placed riders also made the cut having reached more than 200 points.

On the ladies’ side, Meghan Tierney (USA) won her first title with 1,188 due to a eight place finish in Big White.

57.60 were just enough to hold off Zoe Bergermann (CAN) who finished second in the last Nor-Am race and thus had to settle with the runner-up position in the final standings (1,089).

Katie Anderson (CAN, 865) rounded out the top-3.

In the race for the Parallel Nor-Am title, which had wrapped up mid of March in Mt. Tremblant, Canada, already, the rankings looked like another World Cup table as Caroline Calve (CAN, 1,440) won the tour 10 points ahead of Ester Ledecka (CZE, 1,430), claiming her career's third title.

On the men's side, Darren Gardner (CAN) took his second title beating Austria's Benjamin Karl (1,530) with a total score of 1,889.
