The Dutch cyclist Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) can look forward to a sequel after its interference in the competitor Fabio Jakobsens (Quick-Step) violent crash in Poland.
It repeats the head of the Quick-Step team, Patrick Lefevere, after he on Wednesday in an angry posting on Twitter claimed that Groenewegen was put in prison.
- I can confirm what I wrote on Twitter. It was dirty, run by Groenewegen.
- We have already sent a complaint to the UCI (The International Cykelunion, ed.), and we have reported him to Polish police. We will not let this matter fall to the ground, says Patrick Lefevere.
At Wednesday's 1. stage of Poland drove Fabio Jakobsen for the win in a massespurt, but Groenewegen swung out of its path and blocked the way for his compatriot.
Fabio Jakobsen went out in the barrier in a violent crash, which also went out over the other riders.
on the Night of Thursday, he was operated on in the face. Jakobsen has also been put in artificial coma, but he should be a safe place.
- I have reviewed the sprint plenty of times, and I can't fathom why Groenewegen made it, says Patrick Lefevere.
Lefevere tells at the same time, he has been the head of Dylan Groenewegens employer, the Jumbo Visma, in the pipe.
I told him that it was brave of him to ring me up, and that I could not understand why Groenewegen had made, as he has done, says the holdchefen.
Earlier Thursday was Dylan Groenewegen even out to tell me that he is affected by the violent crash.
- I can't find words to describe how sorry I am for Fabio and others affected by the crash.
- currently Fabios health the most important. I'm always thinking on him, wrote Dylan Groenewegen on Twitter.
