Team Sky Soigneur Txema González Passes Away

Velonews reported today that a team soigneur, Spanish massage therapist Txema González, died in the hospital in Sevilla.  Greg Henderson tweeted earlier today about the illness:

Keep fighting team carer Txema. He is in a very critical coma condition in Sevilla hospital. All related to @teamsky virus that swept team.

Juan Flecha abandoned today after spending a few hours in the hospital sick last night. I commented on the live thread today they should pull the team out and go home. The risk just seems too high. They are also risking infecting everyone else.

Update: Team Sky has clarified in a statement on their website that Txema González's death was not caused by the same virus that has made the other riders and staff ill.
