Dutch cyclist Fabio Jakobsen is in serious condition after falling on the Polish tour



Dutch cyclist Fabio Jakobsen is hospitalized in a bad condition after a serious fall at the end of the first stage of the Polish tour. The 23-year-old Jakobsen, who has been running for the Deceuninck Quick-Step team since 201

8, is still in a coma at Sosnowiec Hospital, but is in a stable condition and not life-threatening.

The accident happened a few meters before the finish line of the Katowice stage. At the end of the long sprint, Jumbo-Visma’s compatriot Dylan Groenewegen pushed him against the barriers and let him slam hard. The accident caused the fall of a dozen sprint cyclists, including Groenewegen himself, who was disqualified. The UCI – the international cycling union – also issued a statement condemning their behavior and announcing other disciplinary measures against them.
