BMX: Liam Phillips is left on the floor by sport's most unlevel

In a sport that is all about rough rides, Liam Phillips has had more than his fair share and yesterday was another one to add to the list. That he even made the Olympic Games was a minor victory in itself – he broke his collarbone just three months ago – and he seemed on course to turn that into a major one, when he was two-thirds of the way through yesterday afternoon's final of the men's BMX.

BMX: Shanaze Reade determined to keep wheels turning for Team GB

The track cycling may have finished yesterday but Britain's gold rush can continue next to it, and on a slightly different vehicle, today. The BMX cycling starts this afternoon with the seeding runs, on the BMX track immediately next to the Velodrome in which Britain have been so thrillingly dominant. Shanaze Reade will be hoping to replicate the success of Victoria Pendleton, her former team-mate and current room-mate, starting today at 3pm.
