The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and the UCI World Cycling Centre (WCC), the International Federation’s high-level training and coaching centre, are pleased to announce the arrival of Great Britain’s Liam Phillips as coach for BMX Racing, one of cycling’s five Olympic disciplines. Originally from Somerset, in the south-west of England, Liam Phillips grew up in a family passionate about BMX. From the sport’s first Olympic appearance, at the Beijing 2008 Games, to his retirement from the circuit last November, the British athlete (28) won numerous major international titles. During his 10-year career he was crowned UCI World Champion in 2013, having claimed the silver medal in 2012, won two consecutive UCI World Cup overall titles (2014 and 2015), and reached the podium at 15 World Cup rounds.
