The Dutchman is in Calpe in the Deceuninck preseason stage, but has yet to undergo surgery after the accident caused by Groenewegen.


The Dutchman Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quick Step), victim of a serious fall in the Tour of Poland caused by Dylan Groenewegen that cost him multiple fractures, finds himself in the team's concentration in Calpe (Alicante) with new spirits and turning "from new a professional racer ".

Jakobsen, 24, has been cycling for several weeks, although he continues with his rehabilitation gradually. The date of his reappearance is still unknown, but he hopes that from February, after undergoing surgery again, he will be able to finalize his seasonal plans.

"The process is slow, but I feel more and more like a professional cyclist. The whole team has been very supportive all these months. It is a great motivation. In February I still have to go through surgery, and then we will see how If there are any complications, it may take longer, "he said at the team's telematic press conference.

The memories are left behind, but that fall will never be erased from Jakobsen's mind. "The fall is one of the worst experiences of my life. Being here with the team makes me very happy. This group is like a family," he concluded.
