Kristin Armstrong's Olympic Bikes Stolen

Empty boxes arrive at home

Two bicycles belonging to Olympic gold medalist Kristin Armstrong were stolen while being shipped from Germany to her home in Idaho. Armstrong had lent her Felt road and winning time trial bikes, each worth nearly $30,000, to an exhibit called Eurobike. After the end of the event, the cycles were shipped to Armstrong in Boise; however, when she opened the boxes that arrived at her home, they were empty. Her team, Exergy 2012, is offering a reward for information leading to the return of the bicycles.
