Deceuninck-QuickStep's Yves Lampaert crashed in the finale of Milano-Torino in Italy on Wednesday, breaking his collarbone and putting his upcoming racing plans in jeopardy, but the former Belgian road race champion has instead shown his concern and support for teammate Fabio Jakobsen, who was left in a serious condition following a crash at the finish of stage 1 of the Tour de Pologne.

"I'm OK after my crash today. Thanks for all the messages," Lampaert tweeted on Wednesday evening, before turning his attention to Jakobsen. "Let's focus on Fabio and pray that everything will turn out OK."
