    Greetings pumba.. welcome aboard..

    This sounds like an electrical problem..

    i would test to make sure yor're getting a spark after it cut out on you..

    easiest way would be take a spare good spark plug out with you..

    then should it cut out again pull the seat off, pull of an h/t lead stick your spark plug in..

    Then check for A spark..!!

    could be a loose connection is the electrical box..??

    others will chime in advice too i'm sure...

    found that the h/t lead has a high resistance, inspected and found a break in the wire.

    Replaced the lead now all good.
