Lance Armstrong Has Bike Stolen During Tour of California
Lance Armstrong's one of a kind bicycle was stolen from the back of the Team Astana truck the night before the first stage of the Tour of California. After placing 10th last night during the tour prologue someone stole the bike off the back of his truck while he was being tested for banned substances in an Anti-Doping clinic.
Armstrong reported the theft immediately on his twitter feed along with a photo.
"There is only one like it in the world therefore hard to pawn it off. Reward being offered," Armstrong wrote before jumping on his race bike for the 171-kilometre ride from Davis to Santa Rosa through a steady rainstorm.
The Tour of California is Armstrongs first competitive race on his home soil since his comeback last month. All riders have backup bikes so he will be racing but if you happen to see a bicycle with yellow and black wheels and the Livestrong Foundation logo on the side Armstrong is offering an award and can be reached on Twitter.
