Fabio Jakobsen thread

7 victories as a neo-professional but bot a thread? Yeah he's no climber like Bernal so less hype. But still a very strong first season as professional for a sprinter..

Most prolific wins this season was Scheldeprijs (thinned out group, but still beat Ackermann). Binck Bank stage win (vs a lot of top end sprinters, Kittel, Groenewegen etc), and in China vs Ackermann and Groenewegen again.

He's also not useless in the Belgian one day races. As shown with a win in Nokere, 2nd in Halle Ingooigem, 4th in Dwars door West-Vlaanderen, 13th in La Samyn and 6th in the Great War Remembrance race.

An outside bet for Milano-Sanremo next year?

I'm not sure Viviani and Gaviria approves, tho'. :lol:
Viviani and Gaviria as main sprinters who aim for this as their main goal of the season, Alaphilippe who was close in 2017 and has chances if miracles happen, #striveforfive for Gilbert.

I don't think he will be lining up.

You're right. Having Viv and Gav there at the same time is chaotic enough. :D

Then I think they should ride for Sabatini. That would be decent of them since he has still never won a professional bike race. One of their weirdest cycling stats considering him riding for the team which is known for getting each and every rider (almost) his chances throughout the season.

Though, I'm not certain that would be approved by every wagon in the train.

Nice video. One thing I don't get: What is he referring to when he said that last year, they stopped at the memorial of Fabio Casartelli? He didn't ride the Tour.
Some riders visited the team. I heard from Vakoc that he sat in the car during one or two stages of the Tour. Maybe Jakobsen was also there at that point. Great team spirit if riders show up that were not selected!

I think he was there with a Dutch or Belgium TV show for the Tour de France as I remember seeing it, he met with Casartelli his parents and had a big talk with them. Cannot find the coverage though.
