Bio Nevada's Jackson Stewart is best known for his stunning win on June 4, 2006 at the Lancaster Classic, the first leg of the "Philly Week" races of the Commerce Bank Triple Crown, but that victory was just the high point of an already successful season.

Starting the 2006 campaign at the Amgen Tour of California, Jackson won the Adobe Most Aggressive rider prize for his work in the first road stage, and followed it up with an 8th-place finish in stage four, the longest of the race.

The following weekend, Jackson took second at the McLane Pacific criterium in Merced, an excellent result considering that he was the only one of nine riders in the winning breakaway without a teammate. Similarly, Jackson was opposed by three pairs of teammates in the break and took another second place at the Garrett Lemire Memorial Grand Prix on April 2.

Jackson followed up that result by placing fourth in the very difficult Sea Otter Classic circuit race. Returning home to California in May, Jackson finished third at the Cat's Hill Classic, won by teammate Ben Jacques-Maynes, and won the Pacific State Bank GP in Stockton.

Later in the summer, Jackson's form carried him to second place behind teammate Dan Schmatz in the final stage of the Fitchburg-Longsjo Classic, a stage win at Superweek, and second place in the Bank of America Invitational in Charlotte, where he drove the winning breakaway for most of the race.

From of the 2005 season, Jackson is most proud of his victory at Cat's Hil, his hometown race. It was the first time he had ever won there in the Pro/1/2 field, and he outsprinted his close friend and 1998 Los Gatos High School classmate Zach Walker to do it. On June 26, Jackson also stood atop the podium in the Burlingame Criterium.

In the spring of 2005, Jackson was Nevada's most consistent finisher in the early season races, with a third place in the Morgan Hill Grand Prix on April 10 and top ten results in four National Racing Calendar events.

Jackson's resume also includes the 2003 U.S. Madison Championship on the track. That same year, Jackson also took his first national-level win on the road at the Downers Avenue criterium in Wisconsin.

As a stage racer, Jackson had an impressive overall performance at the 2005 Tour de Georgia, where he finished 13th on the final stage and 50th overall after staying with the lead group over many of the race's most difficult climbs.

Jackson is known around the Nevada team for his deadpan comedy routines. Away from cycling, he earned his degree in Business Management from San Jose State University.
