Last up was Oli Cutmore in the Superclass, where he went bar to bar with the fastest BMX athletes in the country. Some strong and consistent moto results saw him style his way through to the mains both days and he took his place in the top 8. No one of the other guys on the gate ride cruiser too, so our man Cutmore had done double the work of the others on the before the gate even dropped. When the beeps went Oli was with the pack and came firing out of the first berm in contention for a podium when all hell broke loose and he went air walking through the second straight doubles in a massive crash that saw half the field on the deck. Cutmore was up first and back on the bike to take 6th “because places make pound notes buh!” Day two wen in a similar vein and he was back on the gate for more in the main. This days racing went much smoother and he duked it out throughout the lap to just miss out on the podium in 4th. A great finish and keeping himself in the hunt for a top 8 overall.
