Sochi Olympian Alex ’Chumpy’ Pullin has secured a double victory in pristine conditions at the Australian New Zealand Cup SBX events at Mount Hotham over the weekend.

The two-time world champion added his two gold medals to his gold and bronze from the first ANC races in July.

Fellow PyeongChang 2018 hopefuls Matt Thomas and Adam Lambert rounded out the podium respectively in both races.

In the women’s events, the field opened up with top riders Belle Brockhoff and Georgia Baff sidelined due to injury.

17-year-old Emily Boyce took out both races, followed by Christina Taylor in second and Georgia Crisp in third.

Pullin and the rest of the Australian team will now join their teammate Jarryd Hughes in Argentina for the World Cup opener events from September 8-10.
