A Running List Of Mid Year Cut Victims And Escapees
Could these be the next Mollys and Joāos?
Editors note: This post will be updated as the Margaret River Pro continues.
Though the Mid-Year cut hasn’t snuck up on us — or the competitors — like it did last year, the visceral impact of such a policy has hardly been reduced.
Despite two of last year’s cut victims, Molly Picklum and Joāo Chianca, currently sitting at World #1, the immediate weight of falling off tour won’t feel diminished for those experiencing it.
Below is an updated list of those who will be heading to the Challenger and who will be truckin’ to Lemoore.
