AMSTERDAM – Faster than expected, Niki Terpstra will make his comeback in the Tour of Wallonia on Sunday. For the past two months, the 36-year-old classic specialist has been working on his return, to see Fabio Jakobsen end up in hospital during his own rehabilitation. The terrible images cut like a knife into Terpstra’s living room. Obviously, because he himself was recently wrinkled, but also because he introduced Jakobsen to the sometimes cruel cycling world during his first year as a professional.
