Reade withdraws from UCI BMX World Championships
British Cycling has today confirmed that Shanaze Reade has withdrawn from the forthcoming UCI BMX World Championships, which are scheduled to take place in Auckland from July 24 to July 28.

Shanaze sustained a knee injury after falling during a training camp in Papendal in early July. GB Cycling Team’s physiotherapist Phil Burt explains: “Shanaze has worked hard to recover from her recent knee injury but unfortunately time has run out for her to be in competitive form at the World Championships.”

Speaking of the decision, Shanaze said: "Having won every major race this year I was confident and excited to race in New Zealand, this was one of my biggest goals for 2013. To miss out on the World Championships is really disappointing. However, my team and I believe this is definitely the correct decision. It will be a short period of recovery and the plan is to come back stronger for the rest of the year."

Continued success at the highest level is inspiring a boom in participation across the nation. There have never been more opportunities to ride a bike, be it for fun or sport, and British Cycling is at the heart of this growth. British Cycling also works hard to represent cyclists’ interests at all levels, including campaigning on important issues including road safety.

London is bidding to host the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships at the London 2012 Velodrome – the heart of Lee Valley VeloPark – arguably the most iconic venue on London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and already established as one of the world’s great sporting arenas. With a fully underwritten hosting budget, London offers the UCI a risk-free, highly professional Championship that will attract sell-out, fanatical crowds, as well as significant media and sponsor attention to help grow the profile of cycling globally.
