Nice tribute, Cav. 
A true sportsman on and off the bike! 
#RIP #108 Wouter Weylandt. 
Wouter passed away after crashing in the Giro d’Italia 2 years ago. 




Those that ride on the stretch of road between San Siro Foce and Borgonovo will encounter a small but significant memory to the young Belgian cyclist Wouter Weylandt who lost his life in this year’s edition of the Giro d’Italia.

The sculptor, Luigi Santini, used a slab of sandstone from the quarries of Carniglia to carve Weylandt descending the tortuous turns. The dedication: “To Wouter with the affection of all”.

The artist, with the consent of the mayor of Mezzanego, Danilo Repetto, was moved to create this plaque as a way of saying that Wouter Weylandt is not and will not be forgotten.
