Italy Giro Weylandt Crash

Linking arms for their fallen bruthah

The teammates of Wouter Weylandt and close friend and training partner Tyler Farrar, who rides for Garmin-Cervelo, third from right, cross the finish line side by side and with their arms linked at the Giro d’Italia, Tour of Italy cycling race, in Livorno, Italy, Tuesday, May 10, 2011, after completing a fourth stage honoring the Leopard-Trek cyclist who died in a high-speed crash. The Leopard-Trek team will continue to ride in the Giro d’Italia despite the death of cyclist Wouter Weylandt. The 26-year-old Belgian crashed Monday during a descent after clipping a wall during the third stage of the race and died at the scene despite medical staff trying to revive him for 40 minutes. “We will start out of respect for the family of Weylandt and also to share our grief with the world of cycling,” Leopard Trek general manager Brian Nygaard said Tuesday.
