Wouter Weylandt

9 May 2011

Last year, the third stage of the Giro d’Italia 2010.
We were staring at a screen in Middelburg.
We watched the riders approach the Dutch city,
trying to find the best position for a sprint.
It was beautiful, sunny, the crowd was amazing.
Wouter Weylandt.. he came, saw and won.
He felt good, attacked and outsprinted the rest of the field.
”Wouter Weylandt!” we said.
”Someone we will hear a lot of in the future.”
”A true sprint talent!”
Today, the third stage of the Giro d’Italia 2011.
Everything is dark.
The sun is shining, but it doesn’t really shine.
There is silence.
The trees on the Passo del Bocco look the same as always.
Though everything has changed.
Wouter Weylandt.. we have to miss him now.


The cycling world has lost a great rider and a wonderful person.
Wouter Weylandt will be deeply missed and we from Ride On! send our
thoughts and condolences to Wouter’s family, friends and colleagues.

1984 – 2011.         May he rest in peace.
