Stage to be neutralised after tragic death of Wouter Weylandt

Following the tragic death of Wouter Weylandt in yesterday's stage of the Giro d'Italia, the riders will in all likelihood be neutralising today's stage as a mark of respect. Our thoughts go out to Wouter's family, friends and teammates at this sad time. Given yesterday's tragic event we also realise that many of you will not feel it approriate for the game to continue as normal at a time like this. No points will be awarded today.
