Stolen bikes retrieved before Amstel Gold Race

Dutch Police retrieved most of  Guerciotti bikes, which were stolen on the night between Thursday and Friday, just before Amstel Gold Race.

Apparently thieves got scared, because the news about the burglary was spread widely across Europe. They left most of stolen bikes in the car, which they abandoned near Valkenburg. 2 bikes and few wheels are still missing, and we hope we will get them back too, but we are happy that most of the equipment was found. Police agreed to give out our bikes to us, and the spare bikes arrived from Poland. Now we have excess of equipment, but in this situation it’s the “problem” we like to have. Despite retrieving the bikes, the investigation is still ongoing and the officers are still looking for perpetrators. We really appreciate great work done by the local Police and we are very grateful for their help. We also want to thank everyone who spread the news on the Internet and social media.

Even though all of our bikes are insured, we hope that this is the last time we had to deal with such an issue – DS of CCC Sprandi Polkowice, Piotr Wadecki explains.
