Press release from Oxer Sport on behalf of the Sunshine Tour

 


 

At around 6.30am this morning Finnish rider Nina Fagerström’s truck caught fire at Montenmedio, the site of the Sunshine Tour. The cause of the fire is currently unknown. At the time of the fire, Vicente Quinta Sánchez was inside the living area of the truck – where the fire broke out – and passed away.

The Organising Committee at the Sunshine Tour, led by the Blázquez-family, send their deepest sympathy to Vicente Quinta Sánchez’s family and friends. 

The sixth week of competition will start at the Sunshine Tour tomorrow 19th of March with the flags at half-mast and they will remain so for the duration of the Tour. Tomorrow at 12:00 pm, the Tour will be halted and a minute of silence will be held to honour the memory of Vicente Quinta Sánchez.
