On August 5, 2020, Florian Senechal was also there to help Jakobsen during a sprint on the Tour of Poland.

But the Belgian finished in the barriers, pushed by Dylan Groenewegen.

A fall that had almost cost him his life and kept him away from the competition until April.

β€œIrony” of fate: Dylan Groenewegen had won the first stage of the Tour de Wallonie, his first victory since the end of his nine-month suspension, following his gesture in Poland.

The Dutchman is leader of the general, ahead of Fabio Jakobsen.
