Leopard Trek Sits With USCR

For Leopard Trek the Show Must Go On…

-by Rebecca Reza

One week ago we were all glued to our televisions, watching the third stage of the Giro d’Italia. Cheering on the boys as they were coming down the last descent into the finish, suddenly time seemed to stop. We were horrified to see Leopard Trek rider, Wouter Weylandt on the ground, receiving CPR. The crash had happened so fast, it was not caught on television – something we were thankful for later. We sat in shock, watching the images on the screen. As prayers were being said around the world, we all hoped that he would pull through. Sadly, we are accustomed to seeing riders, when they do crash, even as horrific as some may look, usually pull through. We admire them; they speed down a mountain at 50 to 60 miles per hour on wheels that are barely an inch wide. Yet the horrific accident that afternoon reminded us just how risky this sport can be.
