Fabio Jakobsen (Deceunick-Quick-Step) has decided to set the record straight after Dylan Groenewegen mentioned an meeting of the two in the Netherlands.

The rider of Jumbo-Visma -who will return to racing at the Giro d'Italia after finishing his suspension for the Tour de Pologne crash- mentioned to Belgian broadcaster Sporza that he and Jakobsen had a meeting "in a small room in Amsterdam where we both got to vent a bit."

Jakobsen is surprised that his fellow countryman discussed the meeting altogether and the tone he used about it. "I was surprised to read the comments made by Dylan Groenewegen with regard to our recent meeting," said the rider through his social media channels.

"The meeting was arranged to try to reach a common understanding relating to the accident in Poland last August. The content of this meeting was supposed to stay confidential, between the two of us and our legal teams. I am disappointed that Dylan has talked about our meeting publicly. I will not do so.

"I would like to set the record straight, though: Dylan has not offered a personal apology and he has not shown willingness to take any responsibility for his actions. I still would like to reach an understanding with Dylan, but it takes two to tango. Further proceedings are now being taken care of by my legal team and for that reason I will not be able to make any further comment."

Jakobsen returned to racing at the Tour of Turkey and at the moment he is riding the Volta ao Algarve.
