#RoxsoltAttaquer was founded in 2013 as a mixed team during the Australian summer of cycling. Australian riders Chloe Hosking, Peta Mullens, Kimberley Wells, Loren Rowney, Carlee Taylor, Tiffany Cromwell, Joanne Hogan, and Lauren Kitchen have joined with international riders, Lucy Martin (GBR), Valentina Scandolara (ITA) and Julie Leth (DEN) in racing for Roxsolt in the last three years. Since inception, Roxsolt has won nearly ever major race on the Australian summer calendar - the Launceston Cycling Classic, the Shimano Super Criterium (3 times), stages of the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic, the National Championships and the Oceania Championships.
In 2016 #RoxsoltAttaquer expanded beyond the Australian summer to field a year-round squad with a focus on further developing Australian and New Zealand female cyclists to be European race ready. The team finished ranked 5th in the Australian National Road Series with 3 riders in the top 25 for the series and multiple top 10 general classification results. 2016 saw the first UCI podiums for #RoxsoltAttaquer with Georgia winning the Oceania Region U23 ITT and placing 3rd in the U23 Road Race. In Europe, Peta Mullens delivered the team's first stage race result taking 3rd on Stage 4 of the UCI 2.2. Tour de Feminin.
For 2017 the team will continue its focus on getting the current rider roster ready to progress to racing for a UCI team. This will include racing in the USA and Europe as well as selected races in Australia and New Zealand.
The team is registered as a domestic trade team with Cycling New Zealand and as an NRS team with Cycling Australia. #RoxsoltAttaquer is run as a co-operative for the riders by Roxsolt with a focus on the Australian National Road Series, and selected UCI races.
