Great Britain’s Jack Carthy defended his men's elite 26" world trials title with a stunning comeback at the UCI Urban Cycling World Championships in China.

Carthy’s gold on Saturday was followed by silver for Alex Coleborn in the elite men’s BMX freestyle competition on Sunday.

"I won because I'm the best,” Carthy said after defending his title. The 21-year-old ended the event tied on 220 points with France’s Nicolas Vallee and Belgium’s Kenny Belaey.

But two perfect 60-point runs on sections three and four were enough to see the Briton take the title having started slowly, with just 60 points after two of the five sections.

Silver for Coleborn

Alex Coleborn delivered two superb runs in the BMX freestyle final to win silver as his journey to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games continued in style.

Coleborn scored 92.80 and 89.30 for an average of 91.05 as Australian Logan Martin won gold with 93.82 with Colton Waker taking bronze in 89.78.

"The contest went really well," Coleborn said. "Everyone killed it - the level of riding was insane! I had a head on collision with Jack Clark in practice so was feeling pretty sore coming into finals, so to come away with second I couldn’t be happier."
