The Sydney based team boast three of the last four national criterium champions including current National Champion Sarah Roy. Roxsolt Racing Team will be lining up for the Symmons Plains Raceway Kermesse this Saturday, 6th of November, at the Launceston Cycling Festival.
Australian National Criterium Champion Sarah Roy leads the Roxsolt team with the 2013 criterium champion Kimberley Wells and 2011 champion Lauren Kitchen also featuring in the five rider strong Roxsolt team.
Australian Olympic, Commonwealth and World Championship representative Chloe Hosking and development rider Stephanie Lord complete the team which will also compete in the Stan Siejka Launceston Cycling Classic on Sunday.
Last year’s Stan Siejka Launceston Cycling Classic winner Lauren Kitchen is excited to be back in Tasmania with the strong Roxsolt squad.
“I think our team will be the strongest there and we will have a point to prove against the higher profile teams of Wiggle Honda and Orica-AIS,” Lauren said.
“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to defend my win from last year in Tassie. Roxsolt gives me the opportunity to balance my base training with some good intensity to get the season off to a good start,” she said.
The 2014/15 summer racing series is the second season Roxsolt has sponsored a women’s team.
Director Sportif and Roxsolt founder Kelvin Rundle said the decision to sponsor a women’s team for the second year in a row was about providing women with a professional and well organised environment to race in over the summer.
“We want to see the best women in the world racing in Australia,” Mr Rundle said.
“Roxsolt is a Management Consulting business that discovers opportunities missed by others. The team is run for the riders to give them the best environment to race in and to show Australia that they are competitive against the biggest teams in the world,” he said.
The race will be broadcast live on SBS from 15.30, Sunday 7, December.
Throughout the summer the team will also line up for the Melbourne SuperCrit (December 15), Sydney Uni Velo Open Criterium (December 21), the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic and the Tour Down Under Criterium Series.
