ONE week on from being crowned Under 16 national Cyclo-Cross champion, Solihull CC rider, Jack Ravenscroft, completed the double, by finishing top of the National Trophy with a win in Sunday’s final round in Shrewsbury.

The celebrations were topped when team mate Danny Fox’s 8th place confirmed him third overall in the trophy standings, meaning that the series Yellow Jersey had never left Solihull CC during the series, Fox wearing it for two races, Ravenscroft for the remaining four.

Thick, gloopy mud accounted for both their bikes inthe warm up which meant both had to start onspares and change multiple times in the pits for clean machines.

Ravenscroft dominated from the start, repeating his performance of the previous week leading from gun to flag. Fox was running well until a crash.

For Ravenscroft, there was another trophy and the series yellow jersey to add to the red, white and blue he picked up as National champion just a week ago.
