Geraint Thomas has bike stolen outside coffee shop
2018 Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas suffered that sinking feeling so many other cyclists know so well, stepping out of a cafe to find his bike had been stolen last Sunday
Thomas was out on a training session on the French Riviera when he went for a pit stop at a nearby cafe in pthe retty seaside town of Menton, near his Monaco base.
The double Olympic gold medallist was then forced to take a taxi home, where he announced his misfortune on social media.
“Lovely ride. Lovely coffee stop in Menton. Except someone nicked my bike! Now in an Uber home,” Thomas said, wearing an expression of mock-rage.
“It’s a Dogma F with F12 stickers. Random miss matched wheels and in need of a wash #oneofakind.”
The British rider later posted a photo showing three police officers at his door with his bike.
“Look what showed up!” Thomas said, “Boy have I got a good story for you on next week’s pod. Big thanks to the Menton Police for their help. All’s well that ends well.”
