Tough day for NZ mountainbikers

1:07 pm on 3 June 2014

New Zealand's trio of Commonwealth Games mountain bikers had solid hit-outs seven weeks out from their competition in Glasgow.

Kate Fluker, Anton Cooper and Sam Gaze enjoyed a tough test in the fourth round of the UCI World Cup in Germany, arguably the sternest test of the season.

Fluker was 25th in the elite women's race, Cooper was 15th in the men's under-23 section while Gaze was 18th.
