Fabio Jakobsen was the fastest in the Molina de Aragón sprint. The Dutchman manages to win in a big one a year and twelve days after his serious accident.


Fabio Jakobsen was the fastest cyclist in the Molina de Aragón sprint, at the end of the fourth stage of the Vuelta a España. The 24-year-old Dutchman experienced a very special triumph. A year and twelve days ago he suffered a serious accident on the Tour of Poland. He's back and he's doing it at the same level. "For me it was already a dream to be able to be in the Vuelta after the fall. Many times, after many efforts, I thought about how this would be. I thought about the doctors, when they spoke with my family, with the team ... this victory is for them "noted the sprinter.

The sprint was a bit chaotic. Because of the sprint, because of the tension in the peloton ... In the last part I was able to pass Stybart and I was able to start sprinting inside, but in the end I took Demare's wheel, who had better legs, "added Jakobsen. Lastly, the Dutchman did not want to put pressure on himself for the future: "You never know. It's time to enjoy this victory. Nobody knows what will happen later, "he concluded.
