August Jensen falls hard in the Scheldeprijs: “Fortunately he is okay”

August Jensen seems to have been released with a fright after his crash in the final sprint of the Scheldeprijs. Under circumstances, the fast Norwegian is doing well, his team Riwal Securitas reports.

Jensen hit the rear wheel of Pascal Ackermann in the final sprint and hit the ground hard. The Norwegian sprinter, recently eighth in Paris-Tours, sustained head and body injuries. “It was almost a perfect day for us, until August hit hard in the final,” said Riwal Securitas’ sports director Michael Skelde. “Fortunately it is fine and nothing seems to have been broken.”

At the time of the crash, Jensen seemed on his way to a place in the top ten, as did Arvid de Kleijn. “On such a hectic finish, we wanted to sprint with both riders in case one of them got boxed in and it went almost exactly as we wanted. If August hadn’t crashed, we would most likely have had two riders in the top ten. But it is always easy to talk afterwards. ”

Pascal Ackermann was declassified after the finish for deviating from his line, resulting in the fall of Jensen. BORA-hansgrohe, the team of the German sprinter, stated that it disagreed with the jury’s verdict. According to the team, this was a game incident. (6.46 pm)
