A Sad Day

Wouter Weylandt, rider with Leopard Trek died after a crash on Stage 3 of the Giro d’Italia yesterday. Chastening, brings you up short and hard to put into words just what to say. RIP


  1. Not good. His wife is pregnant too... Such a terrible loss.

  2. I've just watched the eurosport coverage of yesterday's stage. Very powerful and moving. The inclusion of his best friend and fellow sprinter Tyler in the Trek Leopard team line was a wonderful and fitting tribute. Cycling has suffered many dark days, a number due to the pressure that these athletes face due to outside influence and the measures they will go to satisfy their own demons. However, the recent tragic events and the response from the peleton, teams, organisers, broadcasters and fans reminds us that cycling is a truly remarkable sport with honour and dignity.
