Quillan Isidore continued his comeback from last year’s broken leg with his second semi-final finish in two days at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.
Round two saw him once again end the day as the best of the Great Britain Cycling Team racers in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, with a busy day of racing rounding off the French double-header.
But he wasn’t alone in finishing one race from the final as Britain’s junior world champion Bethany Shriever, racing independently, suffered a fall at the same stage of competition.
Meanwhile Tre Whyte reached the 1/8 finals, one race ahead of Development Squad rider Ross Cullen, while Quillan’s brother, Tian, repeated his 1/32 final effort.
Kyle Evans was not in action after a crash on Saturday while Kye Whyte, brother of Tre, was confirmed as having broken his collarbone after the first round in France.
Isidore repeats the trick
The elder Isidore sibling had boasted the best result on Saturday and was once again the man to watch in round two of the World Cup, easing through his opening moto of the day.
Indeed the entire male quartet went through without the need of the last-chance repechage, all looking solid as they built on their performances from a day prior.
That was certainly the case for Cullen, one day after making his world cup debut, more than holding his own to battle through to the 1/16 finals.
