Bad luck for Groenewegen and Jakobsen: final stage in Hungary canceled due to rain | Cycling

Dylan Groenewegen and Fabio Jakobsen will no longer have a chance to book a new sprint victory in the Tour of Hungary on Sunday. The final stage has been canceled due to bad weather conditions.

The organization finds the soaking wet roads in the Hungarian capital Budapest too slippery to drive on. Therefore, in consultation with the teams, it was decided to neutralize the fifth and final stage.

The riders will ride eight laps for the fans present, but that’s it. No stage winner will be declared and Saturday’s general classification will remain intact.

In the flat final stage of 150 kilometers there were initially opportunities for the sprinters. Both Groenewegen and Jakobsen were already successful this week: Groenewegen won the first stage and Jakobsen triumphed in the second stage.

Thanks to the rain, the overall victory in Hungary goes to the Swiss Marc Hirschi. The final podium is completed by the Englishman Ben Tulett and the Swiss Yannis Voisard.
