Get to know: Chloe Hosking (Aus)

Australia’s Chloe Hosking is one of the eight new signings for Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling for the 2015 season. The 24-year old picked up cycling at the age of twelve after having competed in field hockey and rock climbing as a child. Studying Communications, specificly journalism Hosking turned pro with the HTC-Highroad team, later Specialized-Lululemon in 2010 before switching to Hitec-Products in 2013. In 2015 she will join the Wiggle Honda team together with her Hitec-Products teammates Elisa Longo Borghini and Audrey Cordon-Ragot.

Over the years Hosking developed into a respected sprinter and one of the strongest lead-out riders in the world. She competed for Australia at two Commonwealth Games, the Road World Championships in Copenhagen and the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Her biggest wins thus far are the overall win in the Tour of Chongming Island (2009), the Drentse 8 (2012), Halle-Buizingen (2012), a stage in the Holland Ladies Tour (2013) and the Omloop van Borsele (2014).

Chloe’s sprint abilities and determination will make her an indispensable member of the Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling team in 2015. We have asked Chloe a few questions in order to get to know her a little bit better.

We will publish a full feature story with her in the next couple of weeks. Here is a short intro:


Biggest cycling result: I’m not sure it’s the ‘biggest’ race I’ve ever won but the most special for me personally was probably my victory in Omloop van Borsele this year.  It was my first ever race in Europe in 2009 so it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Happiest cycling memory: Just riding my bike makes me happy so it’s hard to pick just one. Probably just doing a local Canberra ride with my Dad when I was younger.

Favorite race: This is a hard one!  There are so many new races popping up on the calendar like The Women’s Tour and La Course and they all have great vibes around them and awesome organisation.

Why Wiggle Honda: For a number of reasons.  I wanted to go to a team that I knew was well organised,  professional and  had some of the best equipment in the peloton. Having watched the team grow over the past two seasons I knew that Wiggle Honda checked all these boxes.  I also thought it could be a great experience and opportunity to race for and alongside Bronzini.  AND I have  alot of great friends who also race for the team.

Hardest team to beat: Probably Rabobank-LIV as was the case this year and also Boels-Dolmans who have done some serious recruiting.

Most exciting team Wiggle Honda product: I’m really excited to get on my new Colnago. They were always those bikes you saw in the bunch or at the coffee shop growing up and just thought,  ‘yeah that’s a good looking bike’. Also the Dhb clothing. Can’t wait!


Loves: Family,  travel and dogs.

Hates: Uni deadlines, wet descents and cold weather (but not when racing!).

Favorite pre race meal: I like to keep it simple.  Some yoghurt,  toast, cereal.  Nothing too special.

Favorite post race meal: Chocolate milk! Or an Up’n’Go but you can only get those in Australia which is devastating. Actually that’s another hate, not being able to get Up’n’Go’s in Europe!

Goals for next season: I would love to have a good strong start in Qatar, Aussies are generally strong early season so I hope to take advantage of that by ensuring Wiggle Honda take a win in Qatar. Make the World Championship team for Richmond. Win races with Wiggle Honda and help my teammates win too.

If you could win 4 races next year, what would they be?: Qatar, Borsele,  Drenthe (any of the 3), Tour of Chongming Island (Tour & World Cup)
