British Cycling’s BMX supercross squads are back in action this weekend, competing at the next rounds of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Zolder, Belgium from 12 - 13 May.
Quillan Isidore, who took a career best result in Papendal on Sunday, will line up alongside senior squad team mates Kyle Evans, Paddy Sharrock, Tre Whyte and brother Kye Whyte, who returns from injury to contest the next rounds.
Development squad riders Elissa Bradford and Ross Cullen will also take to the start line in Great Britain colours in the elite races across the weekend.
Pierre-Henri Sauze, British Cycling’s lead BMX supercross coach, said: “Papendal went well for the team, with some good results and plenty of learnings picked up by the riders.
“The highlight from the weekend was seeing Quillan finishing in fourth place in round four - this will help his confidence going into the rest of the season.
“Looking ahead to the Zolder rounds, it’s great to have Kye back in the team after breaking his collarbone back in March. I’m also pleased we can take two development squad riders with us as part of the Great Britain Cycling Team, the experience of being around our senior squad riders during race preparations and then lining up to race against the world’s best elite riders is an invaluable part of their development.
“The selection meeting for the UCI BMX Supercross World Championships will take place after the Zolder world cup round so the riders will be committed to putting in their best possible performances this weekend in order to boost their chances of selection. We can expect to see some good racing from the Great Britain Cycling Team BMXers this weekend.”
