Armstrong’s Olympic Bikes Stolen in Transit from Eurobike

Boise, ID - London Olympic Gold Medalist and ExergyTWENTY12 rider Kristin Armstrong today received two empty bike boxes at her home in Boise Idaho. Her Olympic Gold medal winning Felt DA Time Trial Bike and her Felt F1 Road bike both SRAM and Zipp equipped had been on display at Eurobike in Friedrichshafen, Germany from August 29th to September 1st.

The bikes were then packaged and shipped through a courier on September 7th, departing Bremen Germany to Frankfurt Germany then from Frankfurt to Atlanta and the final leg Atlanta to Boise, ID.  At this time it is not know which location the bikes were stolen from but an investigation is underway. “The bikes mean so much to me. My TT bike is a symbol of all the hard work that has been put in to this journey” Commented Armstrong. “It is sad to think that somebody out there has taken this away from me and my family.”
