The 23-year-old suffered a high-speed crash at the finish of the opening stage of the race on Wednesday.

“Fabio Jakobsen is awake now from the coma. Condition is good,” read a tweet from race organisers.external-link

Jakobsen’s compatriot Dylan Groenewegen apologised for causing the crash.

The 27-year-old, who has been criticised by governing body the UCI, drifted across the road as he contested the sprint finish in Katowice.
