Drentse 8

Hosking Wins Drentse 8 – Chloe Hosking has claimed Specialized lululemon’s first European win of the season in today’s 141 kilometre Drentse 8.

Chloe sprinted to victory ahead of world champion Giorgia Bronzini and Marianne Vos after a great team effort that saw her protected and fresh with 250 metres to race.

“The girls were really fantastic today. I couldn’t have asked for more. They were always at the front of the race and covering moves that were going.

“Emilia and Trixi did such a fantastic job setting me up in the last two kilometres and I’m absolutely stoked to have pulled off the win and delivered after all their hard work.”

Despite aggressive racing that saw a lululemon lady in breaks throughout the race it eventually came down to a fast bunch finish where the team’s tactics played out perfectly.

After a brief celebration the girls will now turn their attention towards Saturday’s Ronde van Drenthe which marks the beginning of the women’s World Cup Series.
