Lindsey Jacobellis competes in women's snowboardcross at the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix at Solitude Mountain Resort on Jan. 21, 2017 in Solitude, Utah.

Lindsey Jacobellis earned her 41st snowboardcross world cup podium Sunday, taking second in Feldberg, Germany, while teammate Hagen Kearney finished fourth in the men’s competition.

A three-time Olympian who took silver at the Torino 2006 Games, Jacobellis bagged her best showing of the 2016-17 season, adding the second to third-place finishes in December in Montafon, Austria, and again in January in Solitude, Utah.

Eva Samkova of the Czech Republic took the win, with France’s Chloe Trespeuch finishing third. World cup leader Brooke Brockhoff of Australia was fourth.

Kearney reached the big final but fell during the final run, finishing fourth. Australians Alex Pullin and Jarryd Hughes were first and second, with Austrian Alessandro Haemmerle third. The results reshuffled the world cup standings, with Haemmerle overtaking Italy’s Omar Visintin for first and Kearney slipping from fourth into fifth behind Pullin.
