#RoxsoltLadies has signed two additional New Zealand riders, Lydia Rippon and Ruby Livingstone who join fellow New Zealander Georgia Catterick on the roster.
We are really excited about signing both Lydia and Ruby to the team. Lydia is another young rider who in 2016 makes the transition from U19 to Elites. This is when we see many women leave the sport and we hope that having the right environment at Roxsolt will help Lydia make the transition. We had the chance to watch Lydia race at the end of 2014 but wasn't able to sign her to the NRS club based team I was running at the time. Lydia was the first rider we approached when setting up the team for 2016 and we are really pleased she is joining us.
I have worked with Ruby briefly in 2014 in her previous NRS team Boss Racing. She is another stand out rider. We wasted no time in signing Ruby when she indicated a desire to be based in Oceania for 2016. The addition of Ruby with her recent UCI racing experience [Ruby raced for UCI Women's Team BePink LaClassica in 2015] adds depth to a development team such as #RoxsoltLadies.

The addition of Livingstone and Rippon brings a total of 6 riders signed to #RoxsoltLadies for 2016. The New Zealand trio will have their first race in team kit at the New Zealand Road Championships in January.
