Megan Jastrab (USA) outsprinted Alison Jackson (Canada) to win the Tour de Gatineau road race with Skylar Schneider completing a team USA 1-3 on the podium behind the two WorldTour riders.
Jastrab, a former junior World Champion on the road, was positioned well by her teammates around the final few corners of the circuit with teams USA and Canada fighting for position into the finishing straight.
Despite Jackson’s strength, the Paris-Roubaix winner wasn’t able to come around the 21-year-old American and prevent her from taking her first senior UCI victory.
