A nasty surprise this morning welcomed the Italian expedition to the Track Cycling World Championships in Roubaix. The bikes of the chasers and sprinters group were stolen. The theft took place in the night. The van in which they were loaded, ready to return to Italy, was broken into and 20 bicycles were taken, 15 of which from the track.
From the first detections of the police it emerged that it was the work of professionals, who knew which van to break in, despite the controls of the private and guarded parking in which the vehicle was located.
“It was the work of well-organized professionals – comments the head of the blue delegation in Roubaix Roberto Amadio -. We knew of the difficulty, from this point of view, of the transfer and for this reason we chose to stay in a hotel with private and controlled parking even at the cost of more demanding daily journeys. ”
Evidently not even these measures have stopped the work of the usual unknowns.
