Wouter Weylandt

Seeing the coverage of the third stage of the Giro today, including the aftermath of the crash that resulted in the death of Belgian Cyclist Wouter Weylandt, makes one realize how beautiful and dangerous the sport of professional cycling can be. We all understand the suffering involved in riding a bicycle, and unfortunately the suffering that is involved with losing another human life. Today those two forms of suffering tragically came together.

It is because of this that I will not be posting about the racing at the Giro. Results, as well as more in-depth coverage of Weylandt and his career, can be found at your go-to cycling website.
