After a successful summer racing series the Roxsolt Racing team are looking to close their racing account on a high at the inaugural Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road race this weekend. With three major wins and multiple podium finishes throughout the summer racing series, Roxsolt Racing has been one of the most successful teams of the season. It’s a trend they hope to continue in Geelong this weekend at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road race.
Inspired by the prestigious Spring Classics of Europe the race promises high drama and fierce competition for the elite women who will compete on Saturday before the elite men’s race on Sunday.
The 113km course starts and finishes in Geelong and takes in part of the 2010 UCI World Road Championship course.
Roxsolt team manager Kelvin Rundle is looking forward to the event believing the Classic style race will offer a great opportunity to show case women’s cycling.
“I’m busting with excitement. If you look at our squad every rider except Joanne Hogan has raced at the World Championships. This is as close as I will ever get to directing a World Championship team!” Kelvin laughed.
“It’s going to be a great event,” he said.
The Roxsolt team includes 2014 Australian World Championship representatives Tiffany Cromwell, Loren Rowney and Carlee Taylor as well as British Olympian Lucy Martin and European professional Joanne Hogan.
Kelvin said the event will be a phenomenal way to end the team's second season.
“As a team, we’ve really fulfilled our objective which was to add another dimension to the women’s summer racing in Australia,” Kelvin said.
“I’ve been really happy with the summer, I do really think that having a third really strong team alongside the squads of Orica-AIS and Wiggle Down Under has created some really great, aggressive and dynamic racing,” he finished.
