Chris Aitken and Katherine Hosking claim Australian elite cyclocross titles

Cyclocross newcomer Katherine Hosking (Orbea Women’s Racing) and long-time contender Chris Aitken (MAAP/Sixpence Coffee CX) stepped into the green and gold armbands of national champions on Saturday, claiming elite wins at the AusCycling Cyclocross National Championship muddy course in Ballarat.

Mountain biker Hosking, who dropped into cyclocross this season, enjoyed the conditions, with the rain leaving competitors waking up to slippery, sticky drivetrain coating mud. She took off on the front early and held steady to take a solo victory, crossing the line 30 seconds ahead of her nearest rival, Miranda Griffiths.
