The Trek-Segafredo women’s team will not be able to finish the Strade Bianche on normal bikes today. After all, thieves took off with six copies on Friday night, the team confirms.

“Bad start to the day for the team in Italy,” tweeted the American team, which has no Belgians in its ranks. Six Trek Émonda from the women’s team were stolen last night. The thieves broke into the roof of the truck and stole the bikes. The riders will ride the Strade Bianche with spare bicycles. ”

The Strade Bianche is the first WorldTour race after the restart of the cycling season. On Saturday, the women will be presented with 136 km, eight sectors and 31.4 km of clay, representing 24.1% of the course. Their finish is expected around 4 pm and then we know the successor of Annemiek Van Vleuten, the Dutch woman who conjured up a nice solo last year and is now also top favorite. (belga)
