It is with great sadness that I write this post on the death of Wouter Weylandt. Words are hard to gather.
I watched with stunned disbelief on Eurosport of the aftermath of his descent from the Passo del Bocco.
I went for a solemn two hour ride, in my small part, to honour the young Belgian hopeful. With his tragic death it casts a pall over what was turning into an exciting Giro. It's truly touching to read so many tributes online to him ...and he was only 26 years old.
My deep condolences to his family, friends, leopard-Trek team, Giro riders on this devastating loss.
