There was a close fight with Jordan Williams, but Jackson would find 1.812 seconds on the British rider.

Myriam Nicole had a perfect run in the Elite Women’s race to fly into first place by nearly five seconds. Marine Cabirou laid down one of the most impressive performances today as she fought through her injury from Les Gets to cross the line in second place. 2020 World Champion, Camille Balanche, didn’t match her winning run from last year, but she still walks away from Val di Sole with the bronze medal after a great run on the tricky course.
