Aaron March has become the overall parallel Snowboard World Cup champion for the first time at the age of 34 following a sensational victory in Berchtesgaden.
March ended up taking his points tally to 424, 85 clear of the Austrian, with Russian Dmitry Loginov third after a surprise early exit.
The result means the Crystal Globe stays in Italian hands, with March following up Roland Fischnaller's 2020 triumph, while the event victory also saw the 34-year-old finish top of the parallel slalom standings for the second time having previously done so in 2017.
