An Australian Institute of Sport Scholarship and Tasmanian Institute of Sport Scholarship holder throughout her career, Goss began racing at just 13 years of age and competed at International Level throughout her career, both on the Track and the Road. A winner of 15 Australian National Titles during her career, Goss represented her country at Junior and Senior level on both the Track and Road at World Championship and Commonwealth Games level. She is the only Australian to have won three consecutive World Championship Track medals in the scratch race. She was inducted into the Tasmanian Institute of Sport Champions Club in 2013 in recognition of her career and contribution to her sport in her state.[2]

Late in 2012, Goss made the decision to step down from international competition as a result of a serious back injury sustained whilst racing in Europe. Following retirement, Belinda has continued her involvement in cycling by transferring her skills into coaching. Belinda is a Level 2 Cycling Australia Qualified Coach.[3]
