Remembering Wouter

As everybody is likely aware at this time, Trek-Leopard rider Wouter Weylandt passed away after a crash in the Giro d’Italia on Monday, 05/02/2011. The Bike Lane Race Team would like to express our most sincere condolences to the Weylandt family, as well as his teammates and friends.

Weylandt’s team released a statement noting the establishment of a donation account to assist in supporting the late racer’s family. “Yesterday we lost a great person and true friend – In these hard times we especially want to think of those who were closest to Wouter: his family,” it said.

“We have created a donation account to support them financially as much as we can. Everyone of you can donate to this account. All donations will go directly to Wouter’s family.”

The details of the account are as follows:
