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.

This is truly horrible news. When it happened on TV I wasn't really watching and had no idea how serious it was. I became interested in Weylandt after watching his victory last year in the Giro and was really impressed by him. This is a huge loss for everyone.
