Great Britain’s Liam Phillips finished second in the elite men’s time-trial superfinal at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Papendal.

World champion Phillips, who leads the series after winning in Manchester, set a time of 39.129 seconds at the Olympic Training Centre in Papendal.

Kyle Evans - fifth in the supercross racing in Manchester - was ninth in 40.300 seconds as France’s Joris Daudet won with a time of 38.949 seconds.

In the elite women’s time-trial, 19-year-old Charlotte Green - fourth in the final at Manchester - ended sixth in 42.741 seconds.

Series leader and world champion Caroline Buchanan won in 39.166 seconds with Dutch rider Laura Smulders second and American Brooke Crain third.

No points are rewarded towards the overall standings in the time-trials, only in the supercross racing.

As ranked riders from their results in round one, Phillips, Evans and Green did not have to compete in the qualifying motos and will join the racing on Sunday.

Phillips and Evans will start in the men’s 1/8 finals with Green entering at the quarter-final stage in the women’s racing.

All three reached the finals at Great Britain’s training base last month with Phillips victorious to lead the elite men’s standings.

Torrential rain had seen the start of the competition delayed at the outdoor track.
