British Cycling has named the Great Britain squad for the final round of the 2013 UCI BMX Supercross in Chula Vista, USA.

Recently crowned world champion Liam Phillips, Kyle Evans, Tre Whyte and British BMX champion Dan McBride will travel to the United States Olympic Training Centre in California for the event from 27-28 September.

Shanaze Reade misses the event as she continues to recover from a knee injury sustained during training ahead of June's Papendal round.

Phillips, who won his first rainbow jersey in Auckland, New Zealand in July, is currently third in the overall series rankings after three events. The 24-year-old won both the time trial Superfinal and Supercross racing at the opening Manchester round before exiting in the quarter finals in Santiago del Estero and semi finals in Papendal.

Kyle Evans will make his third appearance in the series, having only missed the Santiago del Estero round, while Dan McBride enters the competition on the back of domestic success in Birmingham at the British BMX Championships.

Tre Whyte returns to Supercross action having been unable to start the Papendal round with an elbow injury, the 19-year-old reached the quarter finals in Manchester.
