Fatal accident for Giro moto pilot
A motorbike driver following the Giro d'Italia had a lethal accident on Tuesday morning near Cuneo, the stage 10 start town. Fabio Saccani, for whom it was the 33rd Giro d'Italia, was heading from Milano to the start of the stage when the fatal crash occurred in the vicinity of Bra on the autostrada. The 69-year-old was one of the photographers' pilots following the race.
A minute of silence will be observed at the stage start in Cuneo this morning. He was a cancer survivor and Lance was a big supporter of his. The photo was taken right before the start of this years Giro.
