Bethany Shriever and Kye Whyte

Great Britain’s Kye Whyte won silver at the BMX Racing World Championships, but defending champion Bethany Shriever had a surprise semi-final exit.

Whyte finished second to Switzerland’s Simon Marquart in the men’s elite final in Nantes, missing out on gold by just over one tenth of a second.

The Briton, 22, also claimed silver at the Tokyo Olympics last summer.

However, Olympic champion Shriever, 23, relinquished her women’s elite world crown, coming last in her semi-final.

America’s Felicia Stancil edged out Switzerland’s Zoe Claessens by one hundredth of a second in an exciting finish to claim gold in the final.
