WEEK #32 - CYCLING SHORTS




News

The Copenhagen Grand Départ for the Tour de France has been postponed to 2022 after a clash in the capital with the rescheduled football European Championships next year.


Tirreno-Adriatico adds a stage to the course. The eight-stage race, which takes place mid-September, will be a testing test for the riders aiming at the Giro d'Italia participation later in October.


An incredibly nasty crash at the finish line, during the sprint, between Dylan Groenewegen (Team Jumbo-Visma) and Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck - Quick Step) saw the latter being pushed against the barriers at high speed on the finish line. The accident also involved a commissaire who had to be taken to hospital. Groenewegen was in front and in the last 50 metres when he started veering to his right, blocking the upcoming Jakobsen by also raising his elbow and giving a side push. Jakobsen hit the barriers and went flying at 80km/h as the finish straight was downhill, something the riders had complained about before. Jakobsen then had to be put into an induced coma, intubated and had to have surgery on his face at the nearest hospital. Groenewegen was subsequently sent home and waiting for possible UCI sanctions. Fabio Jakobsen is now out of coma and stable. Marc Sarreau (Groupama - FDJ) was also involved in the aftermath and had to abandon the race with superficial injuries. Deceuninck - Quick Step's principal Patrick Lefereve has threatened legal action and has reported the accident to the local magistrate and police.


Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) won the longest Milano-Sanremo in its history, beating Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck - Quick Step) to the line. The pair attacked at the top of the Poggio and went clear all the way into Sanremo. Van Aert has now won his first monument a week after winning Strade Bianche.


Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck - Quick Step) won his 4th consecutive stage race in Poland, after San Juan, Algarve and Burgos.


Primož Roglič came back to racing by winning the hard Tour de l'Ain, which saw most of the main Tour de France contenders sparring on the French mountains and testing their teams.
