Dylan Groenewegen will no longer be in action this year

Dylan Groenewegen will no longer pin a shirt number this year, Jumbo-Visma sports director Arthur van Dongen told the AD. “We are going to bring him quietly for the next season.”
Van Dongen is clearly in Blankenberge, the starting place of the BinckBank Tour 2020. “Dylan will not be in action at all this year.” Groenewegen is going through a difficult period after a now much-discussed sprint in the Tour of Poland. The Jumbo-Visma rider left his line, causing his fellow countryman Fabio Jakobsen to fall in a terrible way.
Groenewegen’s agent, Martijn Berkhout, announced in the Evening Stage at the beginning of this month that the rider is facing threats and is therefore in a ‘mental process’. Jumbo-Visma, Groenewegen’s team, quickly decided to keep the Amsterdammer aside for the time being, pending a judgment from the UCI disciplinary committee.
An emotional Groenewegen said earlier that he did not think about cycling at all. “I’m not touching the bike for now. Thinking about sprinting is a long way off. I won’t even think about cycling for the next few months. We will see how it goes afterwards. ”
Jakobsen is on the mend, although he still has a long way to go. Still, team manager Patrick Lefevere is optimistic about his rider’s recovery. “I am convinced that he will put on a shirt number again around March.”
