Sprinter Jakobsen Steps Down in Twelfth Stage of Tour De France.

Jakobsen was the trump card for the mass sprints at his team dsm-firmenich PostNL, but could not live up to expectations. The 27-year-old sprinter, who won a Tour stage in 2022, did not get further than a fifth and seventh place. On Wednesday he finished 168th and last in the tough stage to Le Lioran.

In the tough mountain stages Jakobsen always had a hard time. With the help of his teammates he did finish within the time limit, but in the ranking he occupied the last place.

The twelfth stage of the Tour goes from Aurillac to Villeneuve-sur-Lot. On paper, there is a chance for the sprinters, but the peloton will have to deal with a lot of altitude, with three categorized climbs.
