BLUE MOUNTAIN, Ontario -- Canadian Chris Robanske won the men's World Cup snowboard cross event Saturday.

Eva Samkova of the Czech Republic won the women's race. Canada's Dominique Maltais was second and France's Nelly Moenne Loccoz third.

Samkova passed Maltais on a turn halfway down the course and was able to hold on for the win.
