Trotse Cavendish weet zeker dat Jakobsen terugkeert

BRUSSEL (ANP/RTR) Voormalig topsprinter Mark Cavendish weet het zeker: Fabio Jakobsen keert terug op topniveau. De Nederlandse sprinter is herstellende van zijn zware crash vorig jaar in de Ronde van Polen. "Hij komt terug op een heel hoog niveau”, zegt de 35-jarige Cavendish, die deze winter terugkeerde bij de Belgische ploeg Deceuninck - Quick-Step en zo teamgenoot werd van Jakobsen. "Als ik zie hoe hij presteert gedurende de winter en al het werk dat hij erin stopt, heb ik daar alle vertrouwen in. Ik ben trots op hem.”
Jakobsen (24) lag begin augustus enkele dagen in coma na een crash in de eerste etappe van de Ronde van Polen, veroorzaakt door Dylan Groenewegen die zijn landgenoot klem reed in de sprint.
