The world cup final saw the top-32 men and top 16-women in action, with Lambert joined by teammates Adam Dickson as the only two Australian’s competing at the Swiss resort.
Lambert finished in first place in his round of 32 heat, was second in the round of 16, and advanced to the big final after crossing the line in second position in the semi-final.
in the big final medal round, Lambert had a fall after contact with another rider half way down the course ending his race, which left him in fourth place.
“Pretty stocked, but disappointed to have the fall in the final, but it happens, and a top four in my first season back from knee surgery is pretty decent, so I am happy”, said the 23-year-old from Jindabyne.
Lambert finished the season ranked in 15th place, with Dickson in 25th on the standings after finishing 17th in Veysonnaz, his third top-20 of the season.
2021 World Championship team gold medallists Belle Brockhoff and Jarryd Hughes did not compete in the final, with Brockhoff suffering a season ending injury in early March in Bakuriani, Georgia, and Hughes was not eligible after only competing in the one World Cup event this season.
The snowboard cross team have now completed their international season and will return to Australia in the next few weeks.
