Mountainbiker Gaze gets Rio nod

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 9/06/2016

Mountainbiker Sam Gaze and BMX rider Trent Jones are the two latest additions to New Zealand's cycling squad for the Rio Olympics.

Glasgow Commonwealth Games champion Anton Cooper and silver medallist Gaze had been battling it out for the sole cross-country spot.

Cooper, the current under-23 world champion, wasn't considered for selection on medical grounds, after illness derailed his recent World Cup competitions.
