Ian Bibby’s Genesis Volare racing bike has been stolen, the team says.
Bibby, whose 2013 season began in style with impressive performances at the national cyclo-cross championships, the London IG Nocturne, and Challenge Majorca, tweeted his frustration.
A senior source at Madison said the bike was stolen from outside the Music Room Café in Sun Square, Lancaster, between 3:30-3:45pm on Thursday (February 21).
The Volare is made from Reynolds 953 tubing. Bibby’s bike is equipped with Shimano Dura Ace 9000 components, Shimano Dura Ace C35 wheels, and PRO finishing kit. The bike is only one of ten in the world.
It is finished in the distinctive colours of the Madison-Genesis team, mainly black, with an orange band dividing the main colour from turquoise accents on the lower sections of the downtube, seat tube, and chainstays.
