Jakobsen and Groenewegen regularly rode in the same race last year, since both are back on their bikes. But as if it had been agreed, only one always sprinted for the win. Since then, they have never both raced in the top 10 in a race.
That was different this time. Jakobsen got a good lead-out, but Groenewegen simply had more power and left his slightly younger compatriot behind. Jakobsen still secured his second place, which means that his lead in the general classification is a bit firmer.
