Cycling: De Clercq quick to dedicate win to Weylandt
Saturday 14 May 2011
Bart De Clercq hung on to win the seventh stage of the Giro d'Italia yesterday and dedicated the victory to his late Belgian compatriot, Wouter Weylandt.
"During the race I tried not to think about Wouter," De Clercq said. "But now I've won it I want to dedicate this to Wouter Weylandt and his family."
Weylandt died on Monday after a heavy crash. Lotto-Omega rider De Clercq attacked on the final climb to Montevergine di Mercogliano with six miles remaining and finished in a time of 2hr 54min 47sec.
