In stage 3 of the Giro d'Italia Wouter crashed coming down the Passo del Bocco suffering an injury. It is reported that cardiac massage was carried out for around 25 minutes, and that he was given adrenaline and atropine. He was airlifted off the descent approximately 25 minutes after his fall. Latest news report that he died due to the injuries.

This is awful. Does anyone actually know the particulars of this? I hear reports of a locked pedal, and a 25m fall?

RIP Wouter, my thoughts are with your family.

No fall of the height, if you mean like going over the side of the road?

He may well have slid 25m because of the speed they were going, watching it live i still could not be sure of what happened, but from seeing a picture of it and this is just in my opinion, it looks like he may have stuck the inside wall, but thats just because of his helmet, the way its deformed

But no-one will find out until Giro doctors or team release what happened

Race officials later said his left pedal got stuck in a wall at the side of the road, forcing Weylandt to tumble around 20 meters to the ground below

A radioshack rider said it catapulted him across the road.

absolute tragedy

RIP Wouter
