The third stage of Paris-Nice between Le Puy-en-Velay and Pont du Gard was neutralised today by the riders in memory of Cofidis rider Andrei Kivilev, who died this morning as a result of head injuries sustained in a crash during stage 2. The Cofidis team led the peloton for much of the day, and crossed the line in Pont du Gard a little way ahead of the peloton, receiving a big ovation from the crowd as they did so.

The details of Kivilev's crash and death can be found at the following links, with more news and reactions to his death to follow.

The race organisers, Amaury Sport Organisation, issued the following press release about Kivilev's death:

"The organisers and the officials of the Paris Nice race would like to express their deap sadness to all those who follow the race after the announcement of Cofidis team member Andrei Kivilev's death after a fall on the road to Saint Etienne.

Regardless of the rapid medical intervention on the scene of the accident and all the efforts made by the paramedics of the race and of the Saint-Chamond hospital as well as the surgeons of the Bellevue hospital in Saint-Etienne, during the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, Andrei Kivilev could not be saved. The head trauma and the lesions from which he suffered being irremediable.

Our thoughts go to his sporting family, the Cofidis team, by which he was very appreciated. A cyclist of small stature but of great talent, Andrei Kivilev, 29 years old, was discovered by the public on the 2001 Tour de France where his kindness and his good character had charmed everyone.

But our thoughts especially go to his family, her wife Natalia and his young son Léonard born last September; as well as all his friends and fans from Saint-Etienne where he had established since his arrival from Kazakhstan. Cruelty of the fate, it is on roads which were familiar to him that Andrei Kivilev will have found death.

The death of a rider at the place of his work, the road, where he practises his sport, our sport, this admirable task, comes as a real shock. Fate went against him, since the accident does not have any other cause but the dangers of life in the peloton.

But this will put the highlight on the means of protection which are today at the disposal of the runners. They are more important than ten years ago and they are made to avoid similar dramas. And like for the road regulations, there are moments when the civic rules must be put before personal freedom. We think that the official as much as the sporting authorities, will have to concentrate on these facts.

A minute of silence will be observed to the memory of Andrei Kivilev, at the start of today's stage in the Puy-en-Velay. It goes without saying that the direction and the collaborators of Amaury Sport Organization and Paris-Nice, will be at his side all the way."
