2day’s race, #OmloopvanBorsele, 5 yrs ago was my first race ever in Europe. Love it just as much now as I did then. Dutch racing at its best— Chloe Hosking (@chloe_hosking)
So happy for Chloe!
Nice article on Chloe Hosking’s trip back to Canberra for the Oceania Championships
How would people describe you as a cyclist?
How would someone who likes you describe you as a person?
Hopefully that I’m good fun and always up for a laugh.
How would someone who doesn’t like you describe you?
Probably that I’m obnoxious…
SUPERB Q&A with Hosking - gotta love Australians!
Changing teams and the first nervous encounters with new teammates, staff, and equipment is like the first day of school.
I still remember sitting in the corner at kindergarten, aged five with my bucket hair cut, confused and wanting mum. Or my first day at college, surrounded by a thousand new faces and feeling like I didn’t know any of them. It’s daunting, overwhelming and all together scary.
Fortunately, when I walked into the team house my new Hitec Products team was renting for a training camp in Nice, France I didn’t want mum. Sure, I knew things were different. I mean, I had just walked into the perfect genetic gene pool that is Scandinavian women and was feeling a little inadequate. But I didn’t feel like I was surrounded by a thousand new faces. As my teammate, Emilia Fahlin, who also made the move with me from Specialized lululemon said, “When I walked in I felt like I already knew everyone. I felt so welcome.”"
Really nice blog by Hosking on her new team, and racing in Qatar. She’s right, 2013 is going to be amazing for Hitec!
