Tyler-Leopard-Trek leave Giro after tribute

It is somewhat ironic that Wouter Weylandt won Stage 3 of the Giro last year. This year, Stage 3  ended his life. Today's stage was neutralized and became  a tribute to the rider who many remember as a friend and confidant. Tyler Farrar, Wouter's training partner rode over the finish line alongside the Leopard Trek team in a final tribute to the Belgian sprinter. Tomorrow neither Tyler nor the Leopard-Treks will start Stage 5. They are heading home.
