He is set for more surgery in 2021, but in the meantime he is riding again and set to resume training.

"Back on the bike...It has been quite a journey so far," he wrote on Twitter.

"With this post I would like to thank all the medical specialists that have helped me along the way.

"Same goes for Deceuninck-QuickStep and all the sponsors of my team for the support in my rehabilitation process. Already looking forward to my next surgery in January. In the meantime I will slowly start training again."

Groenewegen was banned for nine months for causing the crash that led to Jakobsen’s injuries. His ban will end on May 7.
