Looks like Lance Armstrong needs a good bike lock. Someone stole his custom-painted Trek bike in Sacramento over the weekend.
“There is only one like it in the world therefore hard to pawn it off. Reward being offered,” Armstrong wrote Sunday morning on the Twitter page he uses to communicate with fans as he competes in the Amgen Tour of California.
The seven-time Tour de France winner wrote, “Whoa!! They just came to my room and said our truck was broken into and someone stole my time trial bike! Wtf?!?”
Armstrong also posted pictures of the missing bike on Twitter.com in hopes that the thief will be spotted and turned in.
The bike was stolen from the Team Astana truck in Sacramento sometime Saturday night before Stage 1 of the Tour of California.
Earlier Saturday, Armstrong rode the bike to a 10th-place finish in Sacramento during the Tour prologue. The race is his first competitive appearance in the U.S. since he began his cycling comeback last month.
The 750 mile, 16-city Tour of California started Saturday and ends Feb. 22 in Escondido.
