Dutch Jumbo -Visms cyclist, Dyan Groenewegen who deviated from his line before he and Fabio Jakobsen collided near the finish line on stage one of the race on 5 August at the Tour of Poland; has been banned for nine months. The crash left Jakobsen in coma.
His ban will be backdated to the incident and will end on 7 May 2021.
Deceuninck-QuickStep rider Jakobsen later said he was “glad to be alive”.
He spent a week in intensive care and has had two operations to reconstruct his face and jaw, with more scheduled for 2021.
In a statement, Groenewegen, 27, said: “The crash in the first stage of the Tour of Poland will forever be a black page in my career.
“The consequences were very unfortunate and serious. I am very aware of that and I hope this has been a wise lesson for every sprinter.
“I follow the news of Fabio’s recovery very closely. I can only hope that one day he will return completely.
“Closing the disciplinary matter creates clarity. That gives me the opportunity to look ahead again.”
The UCI said Groenewegen, who had surgery on a broken collarbone after the incident, would also take part in a number of events to the “benefit of the cycling community”.
