Liam Phillips was knocked out of the quarter-finals at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup on a challenging day for Great Britain Cycling Team in Papendal.

The 2014 and 2015 world cup champion appeared to unclip on the second straight having made a strong start in his heat from gate three.

With only the top four progressing, the 2013 world champion saw his day end at a sun-soaked National Sports Centre in Arnhem.

Earlier Kyle Evans and Quillan Isidore both exited at the motos stage at the third round of the five-event series.

Over the three runs Evans - in the same heat as Olympic champion Maris Strombergs - finished seventh, fourth and sixth.

That placed Evans, runner-up behind Phillips at the previous round in Manchester, sixth overall with only the top four moving into the quarter-finals.

Isidore finished seventh, eight and third - putting him seventh overall in a heat which included world time trial champion Joris Daudet.

Strombergs went on to win the elite men’s event as Dutch rider Laura Smulders edged Caroline Buchanan in the elite women’s final for a popular win in front of the partisan crowd.

The event was the last world cup before the Rio Olympic Games, with the UCI BMX World Championships taking place from 28-29 May in Medellin, Colombia.
