Horror crash left Dutch cyclist Jakobsen with just 1 tooth

Jakobsen suffered severe facial injuries in the Tour of Poland first stage accident on 5 August and had to undergo lengthy surgery.

"He is still not able to breathe properly," Lefevere added in a statement.

 
His team-mate Remco Evenepoel went on to win the race in Poland before himself suffering a bad fall in the Tour of Lombardy in Italy.

"Jakobsen is in a much worse condition than Remco Evenepoel. Remco's fractures should heal within six weeks, according to the doctors, but with Fabio Jakobsen they are talking about a recovery period of several months," said Lefevere.
