Chloe Hosking is no stranger to building success from scratch. The Australian former pro cyclist started racing as a junior on the track and quickly found success with a series of silver and bronze medals at the national level. She then made the switch to road racing, where she amassed numerous accolades, including a Commonwealth Games gold medal, stage victories in the Giro Rosa and a sprint victory at La Course by Le Tour de France, before retiring in 2023.

While racing, Canberra-based Hosking received her undergraduate degree in journalism and is now pursuing a law degree, while also continuing to build her legacy in cycling.
