Jackson Wins

Thanks to Frank Stanley of the USCF we have confirmation that Linda Jackson has won the Tour de l‚Aude in France. Apparently, there was a major crash 5km from the finish that took down a number of riders, including Jackson and American time trial champ Mari Holden, but Jackson was able to finish.

Sunday 18th May was another successful but frustrating day for Piers Davidge (from Oakville, Ontario). In an event just outside of Wevelgen, Lauew, he finished a creditable 9th place. However, the frustration came with a few kms to go when he was away on his own, to be caught by eight other riders. Not having the early season form of the locals, he was unable to stay with the 4 riders who then broke from the group and became the winning break. He stayed with the remaining 4 with nothing left for the kind of sprint required in Belgium and finished 9th well in front of the main pack.
