Anton Cooper gets Oceania mountainbiking honor

Anton Cooper, the world under-23 champ, just trained two times this week but still won elite men's cross country honor at Oceania Mountain Bike Championships in Queenstown.

The Cannondale pro from North Canterbury sprang back on Sunday after being well crushed by fellow New Zealand young gun Sam Gaze in New Zealand Championships previous weekend.

He knocked out world No 8 Dan McConnell from Queenstown, Australia, after the duo pushed clear of Gaze midway via the race on spectacular Skyline course. Gaze had to stay in for 4th place.
