SOLIHULL Cycling club’s new discovery Dimitrov Preslav has dominated the opening Youth rounds of The West Midlands Cyclo-Cross League.
Bulgarian-born Preslav, aged 16, who joined the club earlier this year, has won two of the first four rounds and has reaped the benefits of the club’s youth development system.
“I knew this club had what it had to take me to my first win,” said Preslav.
Preslav finished fifth in the first round before hitting the top spot on the podium at Shrewsbury.
“I attacked and stayed clear - my first ever win, coming across the line holding my Solihull CC jersey to say thank you to the club, especially to Robin Fox my coach.”
Solihull hosts Round 5 of the league on Sunday October 21 at Elmdon Park, from 10.15am.
