The 2011 Giro d'Italia is the 94th edition of the Giro d'Italia, one of cycling's Grand Tours. The Giro started on 7 May with a team time trial in Turin to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italian unification, when the city served as the first capital of the single state.In the third stage, Wouter Weylandt crashed coming down the Passo del Bocco, near the town of Mezzanego, suffering catastrophic injury. It is reported that cardiac massage was carried out for around 25 minutes, and that he was given adrenaline and atropine. All the resuscitation attempts failed and, although he was airlifted off the descent approximately 25 minutes after his fall, he was established to have died on the road.
