Tondo's funeral to be held today

Services will be held today for Xavier Tondo, following his tragic death earlier this week.

Tondo's Movistar team has announced that a funeral service will be held at Pabellón Municipal de los Deportes de Olot in Girona, Spain Wednesday May 25th at 13:00 CET, where relatives, friends and all of those close to the rider can pay their respects.

His body will be cremated in the evening during a ceremony attended only the Tondo family in order to respect their intense grief.

The Spaniard was killed on Monday when he became trapped between his car and a garage door at resort in Grenada, severing his carotid artery. Tondo had been about to leave for a training ride in the Sierra Nevada with teammate Benat Intxausti.
