Bikes, products and equipment worth between £100,000-150,000 were stolen from Cycling Weekly last week.
The incident occurred in Blyth, near Worksop, Nottinghamshire, between the evening of Thursday, November 23 and morning of Friday, November 24.
Three vans parked at the Cherry Park Hall hotel were broken into overnight, with the contents cleared out. The theft was discovered at approximately 7.30am on Friday.
Items stolen include 27 road bikes, plus wheelsets, groupsets, clothing, tyres, helmets, shoes and tools. The full list of stolen items is below.
One of the vans had its door bent open, and the other two had their locks damaged so that the thieves could gain access to the vehicles, which were parked out of sight of adjacent roads. Several of the bikes were locked together, but were still taken.
Hotel car park CCTV footage failed to shed any light on the theft.
The bikes and products were due to be photographed for CW's forthcoming Editor's Choice Awards.
Symon Lewis, CW technical editor, said: "It came as a huge shock to have such a vast amount of kit taken so quickly. I’m just devastated that the effort of, not only the Cycling Weekly team, but that of the companies who supplied us the products, has been wasted.
"We are hoping, as the cargo is pretty unique, that we can recover much of what has been lost – I ask if anyone does see any of the bikes on the list or sees a bike for sale for a silly price or something that is just unusual please contact the police or us directly."
Police are currently investigating the incident. Anyone with information can telephone police on 101.
