#RoxsoltLadies continues to strengthen the 2016 roster with the addition of three New South Wales based riders. While each rider is in their formative years of racing at National Road Series level each brings different strengths to the roster.
Ella Scanlan-Bloor is a former Australian and Oceania Junior Mountain Bike Champion who recently changed focus to road and track. Bloor will commence the 2016 season racing track before switching back to the road, racing NSW open and handicap races before returning to NRS in the second half of 2016. Bloor currently holds a cycling scholarship at Sydney University where she is studying architecture. When not racing her bike or studying Ella works in the family architecture business in the NSW Southern Highlands.
2015 has marked the first NRS season for Abby Sneddon. Sneddon has taken to racing coming from a triathlon background and has been active in each race she has started, most notably riding the early break at Stage 3 of the National Capital Tour to be caught inside of 10km to go. Sneddon is a tireless team focused rider who has consistently finished inside the top 30 on general classification at each NRS race. Abby has a background in nutrition and dietetics and when not racing her bike works in a health food store.
A late starter to road racing Josephine Meldgaard had her first introduction to NRS in late 2014 while racing for the Boss Racing Team Development Squad. Since then Meldgaard has collected numerous NSW state titles & podiums including WMAS Hill Climb Championship and Elite Team Time Trial Championship. Josephine balances working full time as a multi award winning interior designer often training in the early and late hours of the day. Meldgaard will open her 2016 season for Roxsolt joining her New Zealand based compatriots at the NZ Elite Road Titles in January.
