Sonderborg, Denmark (VN) – Fabio Jacobsen (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) praised Dylan Groenwegen in his stage-winning sprint on day three of Tour de FranceBut he said he has lost all admiration for his compatriot since he crashed it at high speed two years ago.

Jacobsen had a string of injuries and spent weeks in hospital after Groenewegen jammed him into the hurdles at the 2020 Tour of Poland, making him run through them at high speed. Groenewegen was subsequently banned for nine months by the UCI for his role in the accident.

The two riders have been facing each other for the past few days in the Tour de France with Jacobsen winning the second stage and Groenwegen the third stage. Although it’s a great moment for the Dutch sprinter, Jacobsen says he couldn’t be pleased with Groenewegen’s victory.

“I think he shows that he is a good runner and he can also win. I must say, before the accident I liked him Palmaris, and I kind of looked at him but now it’s totally over after the accident and his mistake. I think this is normal. “It’s good that he wins but it doesn’t really affect me,” Jacobsen told the press outside his team bus.

Having won the opening stage of the sprint in Nyborg, Jacobsen was the favorite to win at Sønderborg. Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl had a prime spot near the front of the peloton, but everything went wrong at the last corner.

Jacobsen had to slow down to avoid a rider who misjudged the turn and found himself out of place as the group headed toward the finish line. As if to exacerbate the problem, his usually pitch-perfect train didn’t realize the Dutchman was gone and only noticed he was gone when Michael Morkoff set off to give him a clear run on the line.

“I think the team, up to the last corner, did a perfect job. Jacobsen explained that all the players worked hard, and it was very easy on the wheels.

“I think in the last corner we should have stayed on the right side a little bit more with Florian [Sénéchal] So no one can pass. Now, there was one guy from Wanty who came and pressed through. He missed the angle and got me out of my position with it.

“I lost five places and then chose to stay cool and hope Michael Morkoff would swing. Unfortunately I thought I was at the wheel, I wasn’t, and I think I missed my chance to run for the win because I was too far away. That too is sprinting but you can You understand I’m a little frustrated about that, but this is a great sport and I love winning and I love performing, especially for my teammates because they worked all day. I got it in my leg, and the speed is there to be able to get out and go to the line.”
