Sports writing, Apr 7 (EFE) .- The Dutchman Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-QuickStep) will reappear next Sunday in the first stage of the Tour of Turkey eight months after the serious accident suffered in the Tour of Poland.

On the route there will be 4 clear options for the arrival to the sprint, where the Dutchman can be put to the test. EFE
