BMX WORLDCHAMPSTHE HUB: PAGE 4THE WORLD'S BEST HEAD TO THE BEST BMX SHOW IN THE WORLDThe BMX World Championships are taking place in Birmingham in May and star rider Liam Phillipsthinks that the competition will be key to knowing who is likely to win gold at the Olympics.The world's best riders will race each other over a four day period at the National Indoor Arena - 10 weeks before the Games - in a bid to claim a prized rainbow jersey and make clear their case for a place on the Olympic team.For Phillips, who missed out on the Worlds last year as he tried his luck on the velodrome track, it is a clear chance to add another medal to his collection in front of a home crowd and set himself up for a successful Games in London. The 23-year-old said: "I think the Worlds will be a massive indicator of who is going to be there or thereabouts at the Olympics."It's an opportunity to perform in the UK a couple of months before the Olympics and deal with a home crowd and everything else that goes with competing in the UK and that's not really anything we've dealt with before. It should be great for us prior to the Olympics."The championships will provide a rare opportunity for fans of BMX to see top class competition. If you would like to get closer to the action, tickets are still available here. NATIONAL INDOOR ARENABIRMINGHAM, UK 24 - 27 MAY 2012bmxworldchamps.co.ukTHE BESTBMX SHOWIN THE WORLDScan
