Fabio Jakobsen’s move from Soudal-QuickStep to Team dsm-firmenich for 2024 has been confirmed, with the hugely successful Dutch sprinter signing a three year deal to start a new chapter in his career. 

Just 26 years old and with 43 wins to his name to date, Jakobsen has already triumphed in the Tour de France and Vuelta a España, as well as winning Scheldeprijs twice and the European Road Championships in 2022.

A life-threatening crash in the 2020 Tour de Pologne was followed by a lengthy spell of recuperation and a comeback in 2021, with its highpoint to date a Tour de France stage win in 2022.

Jakobsen said earlier this summer he was leaving Soudal-QuickStep as the Belgian squad focuses its limited resources around Remco Evenepoel.
