BELGIUM is the destination for talented young cyclist Joe Fox as he heads to the World Cup Cyclo Cross Series this week.
The sixteen-year-old from Shirley studies at The Sixth Form College, Solihull and recently competed representing college and county at the UK Schools Cycling Games.
The former Light Hall pupil is studying for a BTEC Extended Diploma in IT Practitioners and an AS-level in Graphics.
“Juggling my cycling and my studies keeps me really busy,” he admitted. “But cycling is something I really enjoy and my selection to represent Great Britain has definitely made it all worthwhile!”
This is the first call-up to Team GB and he is looking forward to the experience of racing in Europe. In addition to competing in Belgium the bike-mad teenager will be shooting back to Southampton to race in the National Series the same weekend.
