Britain's Charlotte Bankes clinched a fourth consecutive women's International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) Snowboard Cross World Cup victory in Sierra Nevada, while Spanish home favourite Lucas Eguibar was beaten in the men's final by Switzerland's Kalle Koblet.

Bankes suffered disappointment at the FIS Freestyle Ski, Snowboard and Freeski World Championships in Bakuriani, but bounced back with a second victory in as many days on the Monachil course.

She edged out France's Chloé Trespeuch in the final for the second day in a row, and leapfrogged the Olympic silver medallist in the overall standings to take an 18-point lead.

Trespeuch overtook compatriot Manon Petit-Lenoir on the final corner to move into second place, having only survived the semi-finals because Pia Zerkhold of Austria fell under no pressure.

World Championships medallists Eva Adamczyková of Czech Republic, Josie Baff of Australia and Olympic champion Lindsey Jacobellis of the United States all crashed out at the quarter-final stage.

Eguibar was denied a second victory in front of his home fans, but a second-place finish ensured he moved top of the World Cup standings.

He required a photo finish to progress through the semi-final at the expense of Italy's Omar Visintin.

However, Koblet produced a superb performance in the final to earn his first World Cup victory.

Loan Bozzolo of France placed third in the final, but slipped seven points behind Eguibar's 312 in the overall standings.

Visintin is also in contention with 295 points in third, but former leader Martin Nörl of Germany slipped to fourth on 274 after failing to progress past the eighth final.

World champion Jakob Dusek of Austria also fell at the same stage on a challenging course and Olympic silver medallist Éliot Grondin of Canada in the quarter-finals.

Veysonnaz in Switzerland is due to host the next leg of the Snowboard Cross World Cup, with qualifying scheduled for Wednesday (March 15) and the World Cup for the following day.
