Chloe Hosking wins overall in China

Second international victory 2009 for young Aussie

Tour of Chongming - Shanghai

18 year old Canberra Chloe Hosking won two stages and took out the sprint classification along with her Tour win. Her MB Cycles team mate, Bridie O'Donnell, got the team off to a great start with her win in the opening individual time trial before Hosking sprinted home to claim the 78 kilometre first stage and the Tour lead . Hosking also claimed victory in the 122km third stage.

She completed the Tour in a time of 7hr18min23sec to finish nine seconds clear of China 's Zhao Na with Germany 's Marlen Johrend third at 11 seconds.

Hosking claimed the One Day International Cup race in Masterton , New Zealand last month and in her first year in the senior ranks the pace of her finishing sprint has already made an impression.

Hosking is now headed to Europe to race with the Dutch "Moving Ladies" team, run by Chris Rouw.

 

Comments

Chloe Hosking said of her win, "This win is just awesome”, said Hosking, who credited her ability to deliver in the stage finishes to the incredible lead up work of her MB Cycles team mates. “The team looked after me really well throughout the event, especially when I had a mechanical mishap on day three and might not have even finished the event but for their hard work.”
