With deep sorrow, we confirm this Saturday the death, in a mountain accident, of our assistant Garikoitz Baños, ‘Gary’, at 42 years of age.
A Guipuzcoan from Oñati, Gary joined the Movistar Team in 2012 after passing through the Contentpolis and Caja Rural teams. During all these years, she became one of the most loved and respected members of the entire Abarca Sports staff, especially a female team of which she was a fundamental part since its creation in 2018.
Gary’s enormous involvement, his sympathy and humor, and a deep love for cycling and caring for its protagonists leave a huge mark on our team, both professionally and, above all, on staff.
All Gary’s colleagues in the Movistar Team wish to convey to his partner, Idoia, as well as all his family and friends, our greatest affection and support in very difficult times for all of us. Goian bego / Rest in peace.
