CHLOE HOSKING FOR ONE MORE YEAR #YELLOWFLUOORANGE
The Australian star, winner of the Road Race at the Commonwealth Games Gold Coast 2018, will race for her third season in a row with Alè - Cipollini. The deal has been signed with enthusiasm on both parts: “I am so happy, I feel something very special with the team, our Manager Fortunato Lacquaniti, the President Alessia Piccolo. I admire them a lot for the goals they want to reach they have passion and determination. Our help to me has been fundamental in my decision to continue to be #YellowFluoOrange” - said Chloe Hosking.
The 2018 for the sprinter from Canberra started very well, with a win in the final stage of the Santos Tour Down Under, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean’s Road Race and the Points Classification of the Herald Sun Tour. After some important places in the Spring Classic in Northern Europe (2nd at the Brugge - De Panne and the Omloop van het Hageland, third at the Ronde van Drenthe and 4th at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad), the best win of the year arrives at the Commonwealth Games, where she took the Gold Medal in the Road Race. Chloe caressed the podium on Summer at the Ride London Classique and in more occasions at the Ladies Tour of Norway, both in the Women’s World Tour. She has been fundamental in many team victories, for example in the Gent-Wevelgem, won by Marta Bastianelli, perfectly launched in the sprint by her teammate.
The current season is not over for Chloe Hosking: “My goal is to end the 2018 in the best way to give more glory to my team, starting from the Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta this weekend. Then I will race the Team Time Trial at the World Championships in Innsbruck with Alè - Cipollini”. And what about the 2019? “My ambitions grow year by year: I would like to help my younger teammates and develop them, and I am very excited as well to help Soraya and Anna to make the next step in their careers. About myself, the podium places in the Spring Classics need to become victories, and I want to perform well in the 2019 World Championships in Yorkshire.”
“Chloe is one of our most expert and strongest athletes. We are very happy to continue working together next year.” - Says the Team President Alessia Piccolo.
