Sad news at the Giro
The Giro d'Italia has started in tragic circumstances this year with the death of Wouter Weylandt on the third stage of the classic. The crash happened on a decent considered to be one of the tamer decents of this years course, which some pro's have argued is too dangerous. This is a terribly sad accident. All cyclists know the dangers of what we do - but you can't think about it, you just ride and hope for the best, and most of the time it's fine. But every once in a while something like this happens and it reminds you of the nature of our crazy sport. RIP Wouter and good luck to the Leopard Trek team for their re-building process.
