Angel Vicioso wins, Giro d'Italia 2011, stage three

Angel Vicioso (Androni Giocattoli) pipped Britain's David Millar (Garmin-Cervélo) to take the third stage of the Giro d'Italia from Reggio Emilia to Rapallo, but the day's racing was overshadowed by the death of Leopard-Trek's Wouter Weylandt.

Weylandt fell on the descent of the Passo Del Bocco with 25km remaining, and underwent 40 minutes of cardiac massage on the roadside. He was airlifted to hospital, but Italian broadcaster RAI announced his death at approximately 4.30pm British time.
