I don't know if any of you guys follow the Giro d'Italia, but I figured this news is important enough. 26-year old Belgian cyclist Wouter Weylandt has died as a result of a crash during today's stage 3 in the Giro d'Italia.

I'm a big cycling fan and this is just terrible. I saw it live on tv and thought it looked pretty bad, but holy sh*t, I wasn't expecting this.

Thoughts? Comments?

Read about the fall earlier on, I was really hoping he would make it

Unfortunately, when you go 90kmh on a bike, accidents are bound to happen.

Forza Juve

It's especially sad considering that his wife was going to give birth in September, and the fact that he won the 3rd stage of the Giro last year (exactly a year ago I think).

Footage of the crash shows he actually may have broken his neck, among other injuries. Horrible way to go

RIP Wouter

Man I saw it on TV today... I'm a big fan of cycling too. Wouter Weylandt was sympathetic, professional and a great sprinter.... Such a shame.

The TV production was a big fail too, might I add. They were showing Weylandt's lifeless body on TV for way too long. I hope the producer gets fired.

RIP

I only really follow the Tour de France but anything like this is terrible for the sport and, it goes without saying, a personal tragedy. Thoughts are with his family.

R.I.P.

I tried to think of something to say about this, but I can't. There are no words for things like this.

OT: That's terribly sad, especially 'cause of the girlfriend

R.I.P Wouter.
