The first stage of the 77th Tour of Poland ended Wednesday in Katowice with an impressive crash where the Dutch champion Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quick Step), crushed by his compatriot Dylan Groenewegen, was thrown over the barriers , leading several runners to the ground. A few meters before the finish line, Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) deported to the right before hampering with his elbow Jakobsen, who flew into the barriers, in a disputed sprint downhill to 80km / h. Jakobsen made a "sun" and hit head-on a person who was at the line, behind a barrier.

The barriers then fell on the road causing other falls, including that of Groenewegen who crossed the line first, or of Frenchman Marc Sarreau. The fall comes a year to the day after the death of 22-year-old Belgian sprinter Bjorg Lambrecht, who died after falling and hitting a concrete structure. "We are not acting that way, I just met the judges, he will surely be disqualified and we will see if we finish there," tour organizer Czeslaw Lang told Polish television TVP Sport . “It was an unfair fight and one of the runners suffered a lot, two others and then a judge also suffered. The other runners are pretty much OK, ”he added. The first stage of the Tour of Poland was 198 kilometers from Chorzow to Katowice in southern Poland.
