Tour de France: Fabio Jakobsen wins crash-marred sprint stage 2 in Nyborg

They came to the Tour de France to get Fabio Jakobsen a victory, and QuickStep-AlphaVinyl made that dream come true on a chaotic finale to stage 2. Race leader Yves Lampaert showed himself at the front as the lead-out for Jakobsen and, despite a late surge from Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), Jakobsen powered past the green jersey wearer to the victory.

The team’s non-selection of last year’s green jersey winner Mark Cavendish led to plenty of pre-race polemics, but Jakobsen payed back the team’s trust with his first Tour stage win.
