Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank Scores 9th at Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition

April 22, 2019

 

Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank’s Alison Jackson (CAN) scored 9th place overall at the Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition, the 7th stop on the UCI World Tour calendar. Jackson’s result was the culmination of a race full of tactical attacks, teamwork and a long-held breakaway by Shannon Malseed (AUS), who broke away 3km into the race with six other riders and stayed away for a large part of the race. Jackson attacked on the final climb of the Cauberg, an early move that was countered by the eventual race winner, Katarzyna Niewiadoma (POL). 

 

“It was a really good result for the team,” said Ruud Verhagen, Sports Director for Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank. “Shannon was in the break from 3 kilometers into the race, and we had three riders in the lead after Eijsenbosweg...After that, I had Brodie attack the lead group, which whittled down the field even further. Alison was strong enough to attack into the final climb of the Cauberg, and held on for a solid result overall.”

 

On her performance, Jackson said, “We set the bar for a top 10 result and together we did that. I am really proud of my teammates and our staff. It is a group effort to get us here, and I'm proud that I could reward everyone's investment with this result for the team.”

 

Featuring 19 classified climbs over its 126.8-kilometer course, Amstel Gold is a challenging, relentless race. Ten of the climbs were in the first big loop, and the finishing lap, which riders tackled three times, included three big climbs: the Geulhemmerberg, Bemerlerberg and the Cauberg.  

 

Next up, the team will race La Flèche Wallone on Wednesday.
