Jakobsen is cyclist again in Turkey: De Kleijn won

The Deceuninck sprinter arrived in the peloton on the first stage of the Tour of Turkey. He did not get into a sprint that was dangerous and smiled at a compatriot, De Kleijn (Rally).

The first day of the Tour of Turkey, a day cut by snow to just 72 km, had a clear protagonist: Fabio Jakobsen. The Deceuninck rider felt like a cyclist again and put on a bib eight months after he suffered a huge accident in the Tour of Poland, which forced him to undergo surgery and undergo several surgeries. The Dutchman, who admitted being "nervous" before this new debut, arrived in the peloton and even greeted the camera at one point in the race.What he did not do was get into a sprint that had its danger in the last corner, in which a strange maneuver left two cyclists in advantage to dispute the victory. Arvid de Kleijn (Rally) won ahead of Norwegian Kristoffer Halvorsen (UnoX). The main contenders could not fight for victory. Barbier (Delko), Cavendish (Deceunink) and Philipsen (Alpecin) succeeded them, while Manuel Peñalver, Burgos sprinter, was the best Spaniard in eighth place.
