Fabio Jakobsen says he’s disappointed Dylan Groenewegen spoke to the press about a meeting between the two riders that was supposed to remain confidential, adding the Jumbo-Visma sprinter is still yet to personally apologise or take responsibility for his actions, which left Jakobsen in a medically-induced coma.

Groenewegen had revealed to the Dutch press that he and Jakobsen had recently met for the first time since the Tour of Poland crash, which left Jakobsen with multiple, serious injuries and Groenewegen with a nine-month suspension. The aim was for the two riders to come to an understanding of the incident.
