We’re deeply saddened to confirm the passing of our carer, Pep Toni Escandell, of natural causes on Saturday. He was 52.
Pep Toni, a charming person and a professional well respected by everybody in cycling, returned in 2020 to the Movistar Team after a long spell in Belgium’s Lotto Soudal, following a previous eight years (2004-2011) into the squads led by José Miguel Echávarri and Eusebio Unzué. His loss leaves a gaping hole to everybody in the Abarca Sports organisation, both personally and professionally.
All of Pep Toni’s team-mates wish to extend their sincerest condolences and support to all of his loved ones during this difficult time. May he rest in peace.
