British Cycling’s Liam Phillips has withdrawn from the forthcoming UCI BMX World Championships in Rock Hill, USA, due to a wrist injury sustained in February. Fellow Olympic Podium Programme rider Tre Whyte will take his place.
Grant White, podium BMX coach, said: “It’s disappointing for Liam that he has had to withdraw from these world championships due to injury, but his health needs to be his priority.
"Tre now has an opportunity to race again at world championship level and he is working hard to ensure he takes maximum advantage of this opportunity in Rock Hill.”
