Jeremy 'Twitch' Stenberg has FMX bikes stolen; Mulisha seeks your help
Breaking news in the freestyle motocross universe: Thieves have broken into the Temecula home of FMX superstar Jeremy "Twitch" Stenberg and stolen his bikes and those of Metal Mulisha teammate Taka Takayuki Higashino on Thursday night.
The Mulisha lists the items on its website:
--Twitch's YZ250 Freestyle Contest Bike
--Taka’s YZ250 Freestyle Contest Bike
--All of Twitch’s old helmets (If you read his etnies interview then you know how much those mean to him.)
--All riding gear
The Mulisha states: "If you did this please return the bikes … we have investigators on the case right now. If you have any information about who may have done this please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the contact form, with any info you have.
"If you see some really nice bikes that look like Twitch's or Taka’s on Craigs List, eBay, etc., let us know. Please, only serious leads so we’re not chasing our tails. If you provide info leading to the recovery of the bikes we will give you a ton of Metal Mulisha gear and hook you up with passes to X Games to hang out with the Mulisha."
This represents a major setback for the riders, with the X Games and other events just around the corner. Hopefully, the bikes will be recovered and justice will be served.
