Team bus destroyed in arson attack before stage 12 of Vuelta a España | Sport

A suspected arson attack in the southern Spanish city of Almería has destroyed the tour bus of the Aqua Blue Sport cycling team at the Vuelta a España.

A mattress had been placed underneath the Ireland-based team’s bus in the early hours of Thursday and set alight.

“Our team bus has been completely damaged in a cowardly arson attack over night. No one was injured. Police have arrested a suspect,” said the team on its Twitter account.

The team are competing in their first major tour. They have vowed to continue racing and posted a picture of their riders on a different bus on their way to stage 12, which begins in Motril later on Thursday, with the message: “Nothing is going to stop us starting today’s La Vuelta stage. Thank you for all the support.”

A statement from Spain’s national police force said they had arrested a 55-year-old man who had allegedly caused four fires in Almería.

Aqua Blue Sport, founded this year by the Cork-born millionaire Rick Delanry, are last in the team classification before Thursday’s stage. Chris Froome leads the general classification by 1min 19sec over his nearest challenger, Vincenzo Nibali.
