Canada’s Tory Nyhaug made it back-to-back time trial victories in this season’s International Cycling Union (UCI) BMX World Cup after triumphing at the Manchester leg.
Nyhaug clocked a winning time of 28.830sec at the National Cycling Centre to successfully follow up his win at last month's World Cup in Santiago del Estero, Argentina.
America’s Corben Sharrah - the overall victor in the elite men’s race in Santiago del Estero - was the last rider to attempt to overhaul Nyhaug, but his time of 28.871 was only good enough for the runners-up spot.
Reigning world champion Niek Kimmann of The Netherlands completed the podium in 28.904, while home favourite Kyle Evans ended up in seventh place.
In the women’s time trial superfinals, the United States' Alise Post came out on top with a blistering time of 31.884, bettering her third-place finish in Santiago del Estero.
Olympic champion Mariana Pajon registered a time of 32.257 and had to settle for second place, just as she did at the opening round of the series.
The Colombian was quickly out of the start gate but slowed as the finishing line came into view.
Third position went to Australia’s Caroline Buchanan, the last of the eight riders to take to the track, in 32.605.
Britain's Liam Phillips booked his place in tomorrow's supercross finals with three wins in the qualifying motos.
He is aiming to become the first rider to win four consecutive World Cup events at the same venue.
"It’s been a great afternoon," Phillips told British Cycling's website.
"It’s my first race of the year.
"It’s nice to get out there and do a couple of starts in amongst people and ultimately do a couple of races before the more serious end of the racing happens tomorrow.
"I’m really happy with how I’m performing and I can’t wait to get out there tomorrow."
