Comments Comments
 
Aussie sprint sensation Chloe Hosking is among three new riders to have signed with Trek-Segafredo for 2021, the veteran pro signing a two-year contract. 
 
Hosking will join Shirin van Anrooij and Amalie Dideriksen at the current number one ranked UCI women's team.
 
With 36 professional wins to her name, the 30-year-old boasts impressive palmarès with standout results, including four stages in the Women's Tour Down Under and winning La Course in 2016.

"I'm thrilled to be joining Trek-Segafredo," said Hosking. "I've been around the peloton for a long time, and 2021 will be my 12th season as a professional."
 
Hosking said her primary goal with the team would be to win major sprint finishes.
 
"I have won a few races in my career so far, but I would like to win more, particularly some of the spring classics like Gent-Wevelgem," she said.
 
"I would love to play a role as a team captain on the road. I've done a lot of the races and have a lot of experience on that front. Often it's an asset for a team leader to not be the protected rider as she can take some of the pressure off the rider who is going for the victory, so I would love to step into that role in some of the races."
 
In her early years as a professional, Hosking raced alongside Ina Teutenberg as a teammate and will now be taking direction from the Trek-Segafredo director, an opportunity that she is eager to seize.

"One of the huge draw cards for me in making the move to Trek-Segafredo was Ina Teutenberg," she said.
 
"I came to the professional peloton when I was 19-year-old under the tutelage of Ina. I rode with her for three years. I learned a lot from her then, but I feel I wasn't good enough at the time to get the most out of the extensive knowledge that she has. So, I'm really looking forward to coming back on-board with Ina and learning from her as she's a great leader with a wealth of information."
 
"I'll also be reuniting with some of my old teammates. I rode also with Elisa (Longo Borghini) and Audrey (Cordon-Ragot) for four years, and I'm really looking forward to being back with those ladies. I also rode with Ellen van Dijk and Trixi (Worrack), who gave me a phenomenal lead-out to help me win one of my first big races in Europe, Drentse 8, back in 2012," said Hosking.
