Movistar rider assaulted on training ride

Hi

Road.cc is reporting that ...

Movistar rider Andrey Amador is recovering in hospital after being badly beaten while out on a training ride in his native Costa Rica by thieves who stole his team issue Pinarello Dogma 60.1 bike.

The 24-year-old was on his own undertaking his final ride of 2010 when he was attacked by the occupants of two cars who left him unconscious after he tried to escape on foot and also took his bike, the apparent target of the attack, reports Spanish sports daily Marca.


Not nice at all ...

Andrew

He was riding an expensive bike so I assume that's what got the thieves attention. Still, it must be a unique bike so... Anyway, I can't see how it is worth almost killing someone just to get their bike :evil:

Nasty, nasty business.
