Orbea bike stolen at Sandown show

Orbea TRI1 low pro carbon bike stolen from Sandown TCR show

Not all sports people are as trustworthy as we would hope. An Orbea Ordu TRI1 was taken for a test ride at the Triathlon Cycling and Running show on Saturday 7th February and never seen again.

The show allowed people to trial top end bikes on the Sandown racing test track. The £6800 triathlon specific bike was ridden around the track before exiting out the back gates on to main roads and out of sight. The offender left only a bag of show leaflets behind.

Only a few bikes of this spec are in the country and will be immediately recognisable as is identical to the picture shown, except it will have a Zeus carbon chain set.

If anyone is offered a Orbea Ordu 51cm frame, a set of Zipp Vuka handlebars or 808 wheels from a suspect source, please contact Renny Stirling from Orbea on +44 (0)1449 711632
