Tragedy at the Giro

Wouter Weylandt winning stage 3 of the 2010 Giro d'Italia.
It happens every few years. The sport that so many of us love takes one of us away. On today's Stage 3 of the Giro d'Italia, Wouter Weylandt suffered a terrible crash and died from massive injuries to his head. It is always shocking to hear about a young talent who is taken away before his career and potential are fully realized. It is a terrible, terrible tragedy and I cannot imagine the heartache and sorrow that his friends and family are suffering right now. It is even more tragic that his girlfriend is 5 months pregnant with their first child and he will never get to see his baby.

Go tell someone that you love them and give them a hug today. Life is too frail and fate too fickle to take any given day for granted.

Requiescat in pace, Wouter Weylandt.
