Germany's Martin Nörl and Charlotte Bankes of Britain clinched the respective men's and women's International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) Snowboard World Cup snowboard cross Crystal Globes during the final day of races in Canada.

The season ended with two thrillers in the resort of Mont-Sainte-Anne.

Silver medallist from this year's World Championships Nörl ensured he extended his stay at the top of the men's discipline standings to a third consecutive event.

He narrowly pipped American Jake Vedder and home star Éliot Grondin in the final race while Spaniard Lucas Eguibar followed behind in fourth as a photo finish was required to determine the finishing order.

The result meant that the German finished on 510 points overall after nine events to beat Eguibar and Grondin on 436 and 399 respectively.

For the first time since the first competition of the season, Bankes failed to podium as she finished fourth in the women's contest in Mont-Sainte-Anne.

First place, which Bankes had achieved in the last five World Cup rounds, was instead taken by Australia's Josie Baff.

Baff fended off Pia Zerkhold of Austria and Frenchwoman Chloé Trespeuch, who rounded out the top three, before Czech Republic's Eva Adamczykova joined them across the line.

It was still enough to confirm the Crystal Globe for Bankes on 723.

Trespeuch finished on 650 while Baff finished third with 493.

The event marks the conclusion of the 2022-2023 Snowboard Cross World Cup season, with athletes now beginning preparations for next winter.
