A statement from The Spanish sunshine Tour in Vejer de la Frontera.
At approximately 6.30am on Monday morning a fire broke out in Finland’s Nina Fagerstrom’s lorry, cause as yet unknown. Unfortunately, at the time Vicente Quinta Sanchez was inside the living are of the lorry where the fire broke out and has passed away.
The organising committee at the Sunshine tour – led by the Blazquez family – wishes to send their deepest sympathy and sadness to the family and friends of Vicente at this tragic time.
The sixth and final week of the tour starts tomorrow (Tuesday) with the flags at half mast and they will remain so for the rest of the tour. There will also be a minute of silence at 12pm held to honour the memory of Vicente.
