History-Making Spring Classics Campaign Begins

History-Making Spring Classics Campaign Begins

From Australia's heat to Belgium's cobbles.

Fresh off a scorching Australian summer, where Chloe Hosking sprinted to victory on stage 1 of the Santos Women's Tour Down Under and strong team performances at both the Towards Zero Race Torquay and the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, Rally Cycling enters their European opener at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad with confidence.

The team hasn't raced the customary Belgian opener since 2015, but it'll be Hosking's ninth appearance at the race, her best result coming in 2018 with a 4th place in the final sprint.

The first northern classic is always a relentless race, littered with cobbled climbs like the iconic Murr van Geraardsbergen, and the weather often plays a major role. After a week of freezing temperatures, this year's race is expected to be cold and wet, so Rally Cycling will enjoy a typical Belgian welcome.

Hosking will be a protected rider on Saturday, and she'll also have valuable experience to share with your teammates. Here's what she had to say going into this weekend.
