In Memory of José Eduardo Santos

Rest in Peace, Pepinho

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the sudden passing of our dear friend and trusted Team mechanic, José Eduardo Santos, following a heart attack.

Known by all around him as Pepinho, José Eduardo has been part of the Trek-Segafredo family since 2011, after a long and successful career as a mechanic for some of the most important teams in cycling history.

A highly-regarded colleague and member of the cycling community, Pepinho was known for his calm and reassuring disposition. His presence will be deeply missed.

Despite being a gentle soul, Pepinho would sometimes break his composed demeanour to sing Fado, the popular music of his beloved Portugal, which he interpreted with a unique intensity and passion.

At this very difficult time, everyone at Trek-Segafredo would like to send a heartfelt message of love and support to Pepinho’s family and all closest to him.

Descanse em Paz, Pepinho. We miss you already.
