A few metres before the finish of the 1st stage in the 2020 Tour de Pologne he heavily crashed after Dylan Groenewegen deviated from his line, forcing Jakobsen into the barriers. The race doctor initially reported that Jakobsen had suffered several major injuries, including serious brain trauma and damage to the upper respiratory tract, a broken palate, and heavy blood loss, and was in life-threatening condition.[3][4] On 7 August 2020, the race organisers announced that Jakobsen was out of the induced coma and in "good condition".[5] On 18 August 2020, Jakobsen said that he was "glad to be alive" following the crash.[6]
