Emilie Fortin secures solo win for Cynisca Cycling at Clásica de Almería

Émilie Fortin held off a charging peloton to secure solo win for Cynisca Cycling at Clásica de Almería. The Canadian crossed the finish line 16 seconds ahead of a reduced-group sprint where her compatriot Alison Jackson (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) won the sprint for second place, and Floortje Mackaij (Movistar) took third in Vera.

The Clásica de Almería offered the women’s field a 137km race from Puebla de Vicar to Vera. The route had three intermediate sprints, two main ascents over Alto Questa Blanca at the 65.5km mark, and a second smaller climb at the 98.5km mark. The last 40km were mainly downhill, with one final climb that led into a small circuit in Vera that boasted a short uphill to the finish line.
