A New Way Forward

Riders and staff go back to their roots in wake of the coronavirus.

"It didn't take long for us to realize the gravity of the situation," said performance director Jonas Carney. "The most important thing for us was the health and safety of our athletes and staff. We had countries, race organizers, and governing bodies all making different decisions and we had to act to protect our people." 

For Hosking, who was hoping to score vital points to qualify for the Australian Olympic team, it was the right decision during a difficult time. 

"It was a really anxious and uncertain time but we can all say now that it was the correct decision," said Hosking of the team's choice to send everyone home. "I appreciated the team making an early decision so I was able to head back to my family in Australia where I have the best support."
