Alison Jackson takes second Canadian title in 48 hours

September 13, 2021 by archyde

The 32-year-old Albertan broke away from Maghalie Rochette at the end of the second and final loop between Saint-Odilon and Lac-Etchemin. On the way back to Saint-Georges, just under 30 kilometers from the finish, Jackson quickly widened the gap to around thirty seconds on her rival, a cyclo-cross specialist.

More experienced on the road, Jackson, a recent winner of a Tour Simak stage, took advantage of a downhill course to forge an insurmountable lead. And it was finally in 3 hours 12 minutes and 43 seconds that she won, at the end of the 114 kilometers of the event.

Rochette conceded him 2 min 17 s, she who had finished 5th in the cyclo-cross worlds in 2017.

The 28-year-old had walked away with Jackson from a dozen runners around the 43rd kilometer.

Sarah Poidevin finished third, 6.30 min from the champion.

In the junior men’s category, Jérôme Gauthier of the Quebec team won the title in 3 h 6 min 49 s. His teammate Charles Duquette completed the race 1 min 39 s after him to take second place.

Luke Hubner de Cycling BC took third place, 1:40 behind the winner.
