A win ‘gives you that energy to keep fighting’ – Defending champion Alison Jackson returns to Paris-Roubaix

    Last year at this time, Alison Jackson had yet to win a race across 18 months. The Canadian veteran grabbed hold of opportunity just 15km from the start of the third edition of Paris-Roubaix Femmes avec Zwift when she escaped among an early breakaway group. She then sprinted ahead of six others to claim a career-defining victory at the Roubaix velodrome

    “For me, it was going to have a lot of meaning to win a Monument and also to write my name in the history book as the first Canadian, male or female, to have won any of the Monuments. Yeah, that itself I am really proud of,” Jackson told Cyclingnews before she began racing the spring Classics this season with her new team, EF Education-Cannondale.
