England's Liam Phillips uses home advantage for the first UCI SX World Cup Time Trial win of the season in front of loud fans in the  National Cycling Centre. Although not a personal record, the sub 29 second time was needed to get Latvian Edzus Treimanis out of the hot seat. Treimanis set a time of 29.253 early in the final which was beat by the popular Phillips with one more rider to go: Time Trial World Champion Connor Fields (USA). With all eyes on the big screen the relief was big when the American set the second fastest time leaving Phillips the winner of the evening.

It's been a busy week coming back from Mexico and then pretty much straight on to Manchester for the first UCI SX World Cup of the year. We've got some good photos from Mexico and its ladies that we might use some time in the future but we haven't taken any spectacular shots at the indoor place in the UK yet that would fit on the Pin Up page.
