Zoe Cuthbert

Zoe Cuthbert (cycling) made history at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, winning Australia’s first medal in mountain biking when she won silver in the women’s mountain bike event. It was a final lap surge that delivered the silver medal for the “Flying Racoon”, Zoe’s Instagram handle she created when she was 12-years-old. But the now 21-year-old had a debut Games to remember. Cuthbert comes from an extreme sports family. Her mother competed at the X Games in rock climbing, while her father Paul was an ultra-marathoner. Cuthbert entered her first race aged eight, alongside her mother for the Canberra Off-Road Cyclists, where she finished last after her bike chain broke. She quickly rose through the ranks and in 2019 won the Australian MTB junior titles in cross-country, cross-country short circuit, relay and enduro. She followed that with the Oceania title in cross-country and a fifth placing in the world junior championships. Before each race, Cuthbert likes to attach a local flower to her bike to see how long it can remain attached. She is studying a Bachelor of Design at the Australian National University.
