Trek Women

Just a few hours after the time trial at the Tour of California, someone (presumably a thief) removed four bikes from the Astana truck outside the team hotel in Sacramento.  Lance Armstrong's time-trial bike was taken along with race bikes belonging to Astana teammates Steve Morabito, Yaroslav Popovych and Janez Brajkovic.

Who is stupid enough to try and get away with something like this?  Do they really think they'll never get caught?  I would love to know what was going through their head when they broke into the team van.   Does "one of a kind" or "the only one in the world" mean anything to this person? 

As a dedicated Women Who Rides and a lover of TREK, Lance Armstrong and the stunning time trial bike, I would like to offer a reward.  All I can say is that the reward will be really really big.  You can contact me at [email protected] and then I'll contact Lance and I'll bet he'll even double my reward.  Don't be an idiot!  Do the right thing and give those bikes back!


Wow, that is completely crappy!!!!
That to me is right up there with taking medicine from sick kids. My hubby says someone will be stupid enough to try and sell it on E-bay. I on the other hand think that whom ever did this it is a crazed fan and is not thinking of what will happen. The bikes that Lance and the rest of the team use are georguous and I have high hopes, will be found soon.

I know. I cannot believe the nerve of some people. Look at the wonderful work Armstrong has done for cancer patients, survivors, and families. I'll never understand what makes a person feel that they are entitled to have something that they didn't work for. Lance, I hope you get your bike back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND keep up the fantastic, awe inspiring work that you do!!!!!
