The bikes that Boise cyclist Kristin Armstrong rode in the 2012 London Olympics have been stolen. Armstrong received two empty bike boxes at her Boise home Tuesday.
The bikes, including the time trial bike she rode to her second consecutive Olympic gold medal, were on display in Germany. They were shipped from Germany on Sept. 7, making several stops along the way. It is not known at what point in the trip the bikes were stolen.
“The bikes mean so much to me. My TT bike is a symbol of all the hard work that has been put into this journey,” Armstrong said. “It is sad to think that somebody out there has taken this away from me and my family.”
