Birthday Boy Jakobsen Gets the Perfect Present at La Vuelta

Birthday Boy Jakobsen Gets the Perfect Present at La Vuelta

Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (Spain) - Press Release: Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s sprinter becomes the first Dutchman in three decades to win three stages at a single edition of the race.

Fabio Jakobsen couldn’t have dreamed of a better birthday present on the day he turned 25. Clad in the green jersey he sports since the opening week of the race, the “Hurricane of Heukelum” made it a hat-trick of victories at the final Grand Tour of the season, in Santa Cruz de Bezana, a small Cantabrian town which welcomed the race for the first time.

The 180km stage wasn’t an easy one, a series of unclassified climbs testing the sprinters. On the hardest of these, with around 50 kilometers to go, several teams piled on the pressure, splitting the peloton, among those dropped being also Fabio. As soon as this happened, the Wolfpack rallied around its leader and clawed back time, helping Jakobsen bridge across inside the final 40 kilometers.
