Fabio Jakobsen talks about his crash for the first time

This interview is old just four days ago at the time of this posting. Makes for a fitting closure to this thread, that it ended reasonably well (Or how else to put it. After some thought, I edited out 'very' in front of 'reasonably' and maybe I should take the 'reasonably' out as well).

Some pretty drastic reading in spots but should be required reading for all who take part in sprints and racing generally.

Good article, but I'm a bit disappointed in Jakobsen. I'm sure he has leaned into another competitor a time or two. It just didn't result in a serious accident. No one is trying to injure another rider though, which is basically what he is alleging. They are just trying to gain an advantage. It is a real tragedy he was so seriously injured, but bike injuries are part of the sport. Now, the safety barriers are another aspect...
