Cycling thieves are busy
During the race several bikes were stolen from the Astana team during the Sacramento stage, including Lance Armstrong's time trial bike which was returned anonymously to police three days later, in time for Armstrong to ride the bike in the Solvang time trial.
According to the story, among the items stolen from Zabriskie are 12 bikes, including his Olympic time trial bike, worth $100,000, his Subaru Outback and Toyota Scion, his $5,000-team issued Cervelo bike frame and a silver Beijing Olympic ring with his initials -- DZ -- engraved on it.
Armstrong is amassing his Twitter army to help recover Zabriskie's pilfered property as well.
