Tour of Scotland: Jackson wins stage 2

American takes overall lead after opening stage cancellation

Alison Jackson (Team Tibco-SVB) won the first proper stage of the Tour of Scotland on Saturday, triumphing over Emma White (Rally-UHC) and Stone Borgli (Norway) in a high-speed sprint finish in Perth.

The all-new race had begun on Friday but extreme weather conditions forced the cancellation of the 103km opening stage from Dundee to Dunfermline.

Stage 2 went ahead, albeit in windy conditions, and offered a largely flat 139km route from Glasgow to Perth. With the only categorised climb of the day - Duke’s Pass - coming inside 40km, it was always likely to end in a bunch sprint.

After a cagey start, it took Duke’s Pass to force a selection and form a breakaway. In there were nine riders, almost half of them from the Bigla team: Nikola Noskova, Elise Chabbey, Mikayla Harvey, Leah Thomas. The other five were Joscelin Lowden (Drops Cycling), Krista Hickok-Doebel (Rally-UHC), Brodie Chapman (Tibco-SVB), and Stine Borgil (Norway), and Ursa Pintar (BTC City Ljubljana), who joined late.

They never gained much more than a minute over the peloton and were caught with 50km to go, with the exception of Chapman, who went it alone for the best part of 40km. Having built a lead of nearly two minutes, she was unable to hold off the advancing bunch and was caught just inside 10km to go.

From there, it all came down to a bunch sprint, and Jackson, whose teammates had been doing no work due to Chapman’s presence up the road, was in a strong position. It was a close contest with White, but Jackson took it, with Borgli a slightly more distant third.

“We had Brodie Chapman off the front, she was out for 50km so that gave me time to think about how I was going to win a sprint if it came back together,” said Jackson.

“I was the freshest coming in, and with 1.5km to go there was a left turn, quite technical, which is better for me because it strung it out. I had my eye on a couple of sprinters. Emma White started her sprint early but I was right there and on it. It was all just heart and desire and wanting to win for the team today.”

The Tour of Scotland culminates on Sunday with a 118.3km stage in Edinburgh that features the climb of The Mount before three short finishing laps of a hilly circuit.

“It’s really exciting to have the first leader’s jersey in the first tour of Scotland,” Jackson added. “Tomorrow we’re going to try to win the day and keep the yellow jersey.”
