SOLIHULL-based Joe Fox scored 10th place at the National Junior Cyclocross Championships at Derby last Sunday.
Riding in the colours of his team, Rapha Condor CC, the sports-aid funded athlete has struggled since mid-November with a virus that has prevented any meaningful training and many missed events.
Elsewhere for Solihull CC, Jack Ravenscroft finished in the top 10 in the under 16 category, despite only being 14.
Danny Fox competed in the same category but was still recovering from illness and finished in 26th. Alex Mitchell rode in the under 14 race, but a below-par performance saw him finish in 16th.
Ben Sherman, Natty Clements, Becky Keogh and club coach Gary Rowing-Parker also represented Solihull in the Championship.
