Cooper claimed his place after a second-straight top 10 finish at the latest World Cup event in the Czech Republic this morning.

The 26-year-old came eighth on a slow, muddy course to back up his 6th place finish in Germany last week.

Cooper is expected to be named as New Zealand's sole male rider for the Olympics early next month.
