Hundreds attend Weylandt funeral

Hundreds of fans, riders and cycling officials have attended the funeral of Wouter Weylandt, who died following a crash during the Giro d'Italia last week.
Several of Weylandt's Leopard-Trek teammates, including star rider Fabian Cancellara, attended the ceremony at Ghent's Saint Peter's church. Huge screens were placed outside the church for fans who could not get in.
The Giro was also planning a minute's silence at the start of Wednesday's stage to honor the Belgian rider, who fell on a descent during the third stage of the three-week race through Italy.
