Vuelta a España: Runner-up for Jakobsen in Albacete

Vuelta a España: Runner-up for Jakobsen in Albacete

Three flat stages so far in the opening week of the 76th La Vuelta and as many bunch sprints, and Fabio Jakobsen is the only rider to have concluded all three on the podium, showing amazing physical and mental power one year after the accident that put him on a long road to recovery, which in his own words, concluded with the victory he got in Molina de Aragon.

Wednesday, on a 184.4km stage where the riders remained alert due to the crosswinds that threatened to split the bunch, Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s Dutchman was again in the thick of the action. In what was another fraught finale – this time in Albacete – marked by a lot of nervousness and a big crash with 12 kilometers to go, Fabio took second behind Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Fenix) and added more points to his tally in the green jersey classification.

The race continues Thursday with a short stage to Alto de la Montaña de Cullera, in the province of Valencia, where a 1.9km climb averaging a gruelling 9.4% promises to bring new changes to the general classification.
