The last memories Dylan Groenewegen left in competition were the terrible images of the Fabio Jakobsen accident in the Tour of Poland. A controversial maneuver by the Dutchman that, together with the slight descent of the road in the sprint zone, caused an accident at more than 80 km / h from which his compatriot of the Deceuninck-QuickStep could get out alive.

For his recklessness, the Jumbo-Visma runner was punished with a penalty of nine months without running. Once completed, Groenewegen will return to roads for which he has already defined his timetable. The return will take place in Hungary on May 12, carrera a la que le seguirán Tour de Noruega, La Rund um Köln, el ZLM Tour, Nacional de Países Bajos, el Tour de Wallonie, Euroeyes Cyclassics, BinckBank Tour, Championship of Flanders, Sparkassen Münsterland Giro y Tour of Guangxi. And total, apenas will add 14 days of competition.

“I wish to run to win, but the most important thing is that soon I can find my place in the peloton again and that I can enjoy racing “, Groenewegen expressed in the last Jumbo press conference during the preseason, in addition to emphasizing his guilt for the Jakobsen accident: “I wonder how it was possible. I certainly blame myself for that. It happened unconsciously and I feel very bad.”
