Britain’s Charlotte Bankes has won a gold medal at the Snowboard Cross World Cup in Cervinia, Italy.

The 27-year-old, who won five out of eight World Cups last season, also secured bronze on Friday after failing to make the podium on the opening weekend in France.

It was defending champion Bankes’ 10th victory in Cervinia.

Australian teenager Josie Baff, 19, claimed silver, while 28-year-old Chloe Trespeuch of France took bronze.
