Five months after suffering a horrific crash in the opening stage of the Tour de Pologne, Dutchman Fabio Jakobsen gave his first press conference after joining his teammates at the Deceuninck-Quickstep team camp in Spain.

"It's hard to describe with words but to me, it's already amazing," Jakobsen described how it felt to be back with the team. "[The crash] was one of the worst experiences I had in my life and the weeks after, but now to be back here makes me extremely happy."
