Chloe Hosking riding for Roxsolt Liv SRAM after B&B Hotels disaster

Chloe Hosking

The former Trek-Segafredo rider spent the early part of the off-season without a contract and publicly searching for one. B&B Hotels seemed to be the team that would give her security for 2023 and potentially more sprinting opportunities than she got at Trek. However, the demise of the French team before it really got started meant that Hosking needed to find a new team again. The beginning of early-season racing in Australia has seen Chloe Hosking repping the Roxsolt Liv SRAM jersey whilst riding on a Trek bike still. The Aussie team is one of the stars of the local calendar and has Continental level status which allows them to come over and race in Europe at times too.

Whether this is a permanent move for all of 2023 or a way to put her back in the shop window to earn a European team deal remains to be seen. The rules state that a rider wouldn’t be able to join a WorldTour team now until June 1st 2023, although the odd exception has been made for genuine free agents like when Rotem Gafinovitz joined Roland Cogeas in 2022. Hosking can move to another Continental team but it requires agreement between the new team and Roxsolt Liv SRAM, something you’d expect Hosking to have ironed out before joining the Aussie team.

Hosking is a super experienced rider in the women’s peloton. Previously riding for the aforementioned Trek Segafredo, Rally Cycling, Alé Cipollini, Wiggle High5, Hitec Products, Specialized-Lululemon and HTC-Highroad since starting as an elite in 2009. Her best results include winning La Course on the Champs Élysées in 2016, a Giro Rosa stage the same year and twice winning the Tour of Chongming Island in 2016 and 2009.

Chloe Hosking has finished 3rd and 7th so far in the Bay Crits.
