    Leopard Trek rider Weylandt dies after Giro d'Italia crash

    And elsewhere, Andy Schleck: "There are no words to describe our feeling, we lost a good friend and a great teammate. All our condolences goes to his family and friends. We are all shocked, a day of sad tears in sharing the terrible loss of Wouter. Rest in Peace my Friend our Friend."

    I agree.

    Me too. The display the riders put on by not racing in today's stage and having his team cross the line as one, and well ahead of the petolon was one of the most moving moments in sport.

    Terribly sad. I thought the image of the team crossing the line together with Tyler Farrar was particularly moving.

    I happened to be watching it on Eurosport at the time. Awful stuff. The broadcast ended without knowing if he was alive or not as well, but the flashed to footage of the guy getting CPR and blood everywhere. Luckily Eurosport was off to an ad break when the worst was shown on the coverage. When the producers realised what was happening they luckily flicked away quickly. Really really sad - he was only 26 years old, and to top it off his girlfriend is about 5 months pregnant.
