Alex Chumpy Pullin wins back to back World Cup gold in Argentina
Alex Pullin won his eighth and ninth World Cup golds in boarder cross this weekend with two stunning victories in Argentina for the season start FIS World Cups.
“I’m stoked to take the win at the first World Cup of the tour. The track and the weather were both bloody beautiful,” Pullin said to OWIA after the first win.
“The course was great. I’m just very excited that I put down a win. There is no feeling than crossing the line when there is no one in front of you.”
Then he regrouped for a repeat performance on day two.
“I felt fast in training so I knew I should be pretty good today with the racing again” said Pullin of his second win. “I just had to keep the body feeling good and positive vibes. The first few heats got underway and they were pretty good and then, yeah, I was just able to do it again and lead the heat from the start, find some daylight and go.”
Australia was heavily represented in Argentina, with Jarryd Hughes, Cam Bolton, Josh Miller, Matt Thomas, Adam Lambert and Adam Dickson all qualifying for finals.
Cameron Bolton finished 14th, Jarryd Hughes 15th, Josh Miller 20th, Matt Thomas 23rd, Adam Lambert 24th and Adam Dickson 32nd.
In the second World Cup Australians dominated with Adam Lambert and Jarryd Hughes finishing 5th and 8th, Adam Dickson 12th, Cam Bolton 16th and Josh Miller 28th.
