Elite Women Time Trial: Saint-Prosper - Saint-Prosper
Alison Jackson (Liv Racing) was the clear favourite for the women’s time trial title after her stage-winning performance at the Simac Ladies Tour and she did not disappoint, finishing the 28 kilometre race with a time of 39:58, 43.8 seconds in front of Marie Soleil Blais, with Gillian Ellsay third at 1:21.
Defending champions of the past few years - Karol-Ann Canuel (SD Worx) and Leah Kirchmann (Team DSM) did not return to Canada for the championships, leaving the title open to a new winner and Jackson made sure she took the title.
"I felt very strong," said Jackson, who won the first national title of her career.
"I had a specific plan for pacing and I felt really good right to the turnaround and back. I just wanted to hold it to the finish line.
“I was actually pretty nervous; Marie Soleil has been riding really well locally, and it's hard to judge who would be better on a longer course. My strength year after year has been getting better and better, and being able to focus on the time trial will mean good things for the next Olympic cycle.
“It will be cool to wear the maple leaf jersey for the next year; I'll get to wear it at the Women's Tour of Britain in October."
