Millar wins Giro's pink jersey in tragic circumstances

David Millar finishes second, Giro d'Italia 2011, stage three

David Millar became the first Brit to wear the leader's jersey in all three Grand Tours and only the third Brit to take the Giro d'Italia's pink jersey today in Rapallo. However, the day ended tragically for him and the rest of the peloton with the news of Wouter Weylandt's deadly crash.

"There's no point in even dedicating anything to Wouter because it does not even do it justice," Millar told Cycling Weekly. "I just feel so horrible for his family. I can't imagine what his family is going through."
