Feel sorry for Pedersen really. Imagine winning a shock world championships and not getting to ride in the jersey at all.

At the same time he (apparently) didn't like the media attention so maybe he dodged a bullet there

That was really horrific, can see them banning Groenewegen for the rest of the season. They were going incredibly fast at that point, was the finish on a downhill?

Unofficial information from #tvpsport reporter Sebastian Szczęsny: Jakobsen received muscle relaxants, was put into a pharmacological coma and intubated. The cyclist was taken to hospital, his condition was serious. # TDP20


Sounds really bad

After van Aert's crash last year its obvious those typical crowd control barriers aren't suitable for bike racing, especially when things are heated or narrow

Can't access the apparent source, but read that they were able to intubate Jakobsen and his blood oxygen saturation levels were good, but he lost a lot of blood and has serious craniocerebral trauma.

Since all the previous stuff sounded really bad thought it would be worth updating with more recent news which is a bit better

https://sport.tvp.pl/49285887/stan-stabilny-ale-ciezki-najwazniejsze-godziny-fabio-jakobsena

"The doctor also gave the first good news. -It is optimistic that apart from craniofacial injuries, no changes were found radiologically in the remaining organs. The general condition is stable, but we have to wait for the next hours to assess the neurological status. The measures he is given do not allow a complete assessment of the degree of damage. I think we will be able to provide full information in the morning ."

Terrible still but hopefully not immediately life-threatening anymore

Rumor is BMC is also moving from NTT to AG2R. I'm sure GVA will be happy about that.

Other silly season equipment sponsor rumors:
Cervelo to Jumbo-Visma (more or less confirmed)
Movistar loses Canyon (almost certain with Canyon backing both Alpecin-Fenix and Arkea-Samsic)
Argon 18 in talks with Mitchelton-Scott
Bianchi in talks with Israel Start-Up Nation

Man I'm gonna miss the yellow/celeste combo that Jumbo have, all yellow, white and black will be so much less interesting. Wonder who Movistar will move to.

Lots of injuries yesterday :ohdear: Evenepoel, Kruiswijk, Schachmann, Buchmann, Roglic

It seems to me like there's more injuries in general in the racing so far. Is it just that the races are crammed together so the frequency is higher making it seem like there's more? Could also be riders being a bit out of practice riding so aggressively or different/hotter weather etc. Quite a few of the recent crashes have been down to course organisation too though.

Yeah the performances are a bit :tinfoil: this year, similar to the EPO years with all these attacks
