Default Wouter Weylandt memorial thread

On this sad day Wouter Weylandt, aged 26, died during the 3rd stage of the Giro d'Italia.


Thoughts go out to his friends and family.

I'm seeing the feed from RAI sport and they are sounding very grim. Shots of grieving riders. A long shot from the air of the crash site and - I sure hope I am wrong - but, honest to God, it looks like a body under a blanket. Very long shot, can't see any thing. I don't speak Italian at all, but I have never heard a group of Italians this grim and subdued. Not joking about cultural stereotypes at a time like this, but you know what I mean.

David Harmon on Twitter: "Wouter has passed away it is being reported by RAI and AFP"

Very, very sad.
