Italian cyclist Michele Scarponi has died aged 37 after being involved in a collision with a van during a training ride.

A statement from his Astana team said the crash happened close to Scarponi's home in Filottrano.

Scarponi won the 2011 Giro d'Italia after Alberto Contador was stripped of the title and claimed victory in stage one of the Tour of the Alps on Monday.

He leaves behind a wife and two children.

The board could do with a high profile death. Like aul ones, we're running out of conversation.

Very sad. I ve seen cyclist train on open roads in Italy and it is scary. I was driving down a hairpen road and doing about 45km/h and felt banging on back of car. Cyclists pissed off because I was holding them up. Pulled in when I could and they sped off. Narrow road and buses and trucks laden with timber using the road as well. Great bike handlers but it only takes one screw up by somebody.
